Abstract: This paper analyzes the normative roles of constructive journalism and solutions journalism by analyzing metajournalistic discourse about these two rising forms of alternative journalism. The findings show that constructive and solutions journalism are defined similarly: they are claimed to follow traditional journalistic norms and practices, even as they shift focus from problems to solutions. The metajournalistic discourse reveals a tension about the normative roles of journalism. Constructive journalism and solutions journalism justify their existence by the intensified need to solve vexing social issues. At the same time, they distance themselves from being advocates for social good, and instead insist that they are objectively covering solutions without endorsing them. This strategic rhetoric signals an attempt to draw a sharp line between constructive journalism and advocacy, and to situate constructive journalism within the boundaries of a traditional monitorial role of journalism. Metadiscourse about constructive journalism reveals reluctance to acknowledge and articulate its normative constructive role that seeks to help society.

Abstract: As quantitative forms have become more prevalent in professional journalism, it has become increasingly important to classify and distinguish between them. This paper defines and compares three quantitative forms of journalism — computer-assisted reporting, data journalism, and computational journalism — and introduces a four-part typology to evaluate their epistemological and professional dimensions. The three practices are characterized as related but distinct approaches to integrating the values of open-source culture and social science with those of professional journalism.

Abstract: When it comes to reporting practices, journalism’s response to datafication is so-called data-driven journalism (DDJ) often considered as the future of journalism. Using a standardized content analysis of projects nominated for the Data Journalism Awards (DJA) from 2013 to 2016 (n = 225) we analyse DDJ’s development and examine how the data sources and types, visualisation strategies, interactive features, preferred topics and types of media outlets involved have changed over the years. Our results demonstrate that the structural elements and presentational forms DDJ is built upon remain markedly stable. The new style of reporting it engenders, however, has become increasingly personnel intensive and is progressively spreading around the globe. Journalists still tend to focus on data from established institutions but are also starting to utilise unofficial data sources. On the basis of our results we evaluate DDJ’s potential for innovation and its ability to fulfil an investigative and watchdog role.
