As the emphasis of data journalism research shifts to the Global South, one region that remains relatively under-researched is Iberian America (Latin America, Spain and Portugal). Arguably a space that has pioneered data journalism practices and that has enormous potential for social change and development through open data, Iberian America has excelled in many areas related to the field. La Nación in Argentina, for instance, has to date one of the most innovative data journalism units globally. Also, La Nación, and the Spanish newspaper El País, were, together with the Guardian, the New York Times and the Spiegel, the first news organisation to extract and publish information from WikiLeaks’ War Logs. In addition, Spain is one of the most open societies in Europe, and a global example for open data use.

An absence of Ibero-American data journalism studies from mainstream scholarship creates an opportunity to further explore the developments and evolution of data journalism in this geographic region. In this vein, this special edition aims at repositioning Ibero-American data journalism within the broadest discussions on the field, recontextualising its contribution to debates on the role of this journalistic practice in the Global South.
