Collaborative Journalism Database

Search, sort and learn about collaborative journalism projects from around the world

Since early 2018, the Center for Cooperative Media has been collecting, organizing and standardizing information about dozens of collaborative journalism projects around the world. Our goal is to maintain a database that can serve as a hub of information about collaborative journalism, something that would be useful to journalists, scholars, media executives, funders and others seeking information on how such projects work, who’s doing them and what they’re covering.

And we need your help! Is your project listed? If not, tell us about it. Is the information about your project incorrect? Let us know; email us at [email protected].

Note that the database is lagging a few months behind; we are slowly catching up and trying to fundraise now to keep it going more consistently. (If you are interested in contributing, email [email protected]!)

Some notes on navigating the database: First, it’s easier to see the whole picture on desktop than on mobile, although both work well. To see the full record for any particular project, click on the little blue arrow that appears to the left of the project name when you hover over it. You can sort by column as well.
