9780199008490: Digging Deeper: A Canadian Reporter's Research Guide

Digging Deeper, third edition, is a comprehensive guide to investigative techniques that provides journalism students with practical tips for finding information both on and off the public record in Canada. Written by a team of award-winning journalists, the text outlines how to develop story ideas, research strategies, pitch stories to editors and producers, and turn raw information into compelling investigative reports for print, radio, television, and the web. Designed to encourage students to think independently and develop sound research techniques, the authors show how journalists can escape the "spin cycle" by deciding for themselves what is newsworthy and finding their own sources of information. The third edition includes up-to-date coverage of online research strategies, a thoroughly revised chapter on data journalism that incorporates several advances in this area, a wealth of current examples, new case studies, and expanded pedagogical tools. Digging Deeper is an indispensable resource for journalism students that will serve as a valuable reference guide throughout both their education and their careers.

"This book does a very good job of introducing students (and working journalists) to the fundamentals of journalistic research. . . . I tell students that Digging Deeper is a book they should own and keep on their desk wherever they go."
--Paul Benedetti, Western University

"Digging Deeper is very useful because it is designed for Canadian journalists. . . . I like the focus on investigative reporting - both simple and highly technical - as well as the Canadian laws and regulations that students need to know."
--Gillian Steward, Mount Royal University
