Helping Canadian journalists dig deeper

Practising reporters and students of journalism have a new guide through the complexities of investigative reporting in Canada. Digging Deeper: A Canadian Reporter’s Research Guide is the work of Robert Cribb, Dean Jobb, David McKrie and Fred Vallance-Jones, each an investigative reporter and professor of journalism. Digging Deeper offers practical, effective ways to access information on the public record, such as criminal records, court reports, tax returns and government reports. The authors shed light on the use of computer-assisted reporting and get into the use of spreadsheets and databases to organize and manipulate data.
