What are external resources?
These are knowledge banks that we feel every journalist should have access to – guide books, online courses, readily available data sets, you name it!
Is this MMfD’s work?
Not necessarily. Credit for some of the listed publications goes to MMfD’s team members individually, but that’s just about it. We’ll try to credit and link every resource we collect and share.
If isn’t your work, why are you collecting it?
MMfD aims to create a compendium of online journalistic resources, to create a central database of supporting material for interested professionals – knowledge management is also one of MMfD areas of interest.
Have more questions? Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a journalist and looking for somebody to assist you in using data visualization tools and/or having trouble with working out a particular data-set, we’ll be more than happy to help you – just ping us.
