Journalists’ articles, coupled with interesting advice, skills, investigative stories, databases, tips and techniques, will inspire readers to take up the challenge of a career in investigative journalism.

Digging Deeper showcases interesting investigative stories and individual journalistic successes, as well as providing an overview of investigative techniques. The various databases available in the Balkan region and tips for practitioners are the most useful elements for all journalists.

This is the second edition of the guide, which BIRN has decided to publish in response to the high demand of journalists requiring a guide to investigative journalism, which resulted in the first edition being quickly sold out.

This guide offers an insight into investigative practices and the most important aspects of investigative journalism, along with numerous examples and case studies, data and exercises.

BIRN’s Digging Deeper is also on the curriculum of the BIRN Summer School of Investigative Reporting.

You will be inspired to consider a move into investigative journalism thanks to the combination of advice, skills, interesting investigative stories, individual journalistic successes, databases and tips and techniques featured in Digging Deeper.
