Data Journalism

The Waseda Investigative Journalism Project (WIJP) at the 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 No. 1 nuclear power plant accident.

Waseda Chronicle, which started out as a WIJP project and began publication on February 1, 2017 before becoming independent from the university a year later, plans to continue placing emphasis on data journalism and using it in our publications.
