Investigative News Network

November 16, 2011 in Community, Craft, Policy, Resources

The Investigative News Network is a collaborative organization made up of [60] nonprofit investigative journalism outlets.

The network was founded by 25 nonprofit news organizations at a summer 2009 conference organized by The Center for Public Integrity and The Center for Investigative Reporting. Those two organizations, along with the Investigative Reporting Workshop and ProPublica, had previously initiated a six-month collaborative pilot project, though ProPublica is not a member of the group.

The group was formed as a way for nonprofit investigative outlets to collaborate on anything from reporting to administration to fundraising. In February 2010, it released its first collaborative report, on sexual assaults on college campuses.” Source: Nieman Journalism Lab
