Data Journalism

The Waseda Investigative Journalism Project (WIJP) at Institute for Journalism, Waseda University started on March 11, 2016.

On that day, five years after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, we published a page using public data about the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident.

The Waseda Chronicle, which started out as a project of the WIJP’s investigative journalism publication on February 1, 2017, has become independent from the university a year later, plans to continue placing emphasis on data journalism and using it in our publications.
