Call for papers:

The NODA 2019 academic pre-conference workshop, which will take place in Trondheim, Norway on 29th January 2019, invites the submission of extended abstracts outlining substantial, original, and unpublished research focusing on Data Journalism.

In the Big Data Era the use of information found on the Web is becoming increasingly essential to journalism. Nevertheless, the question remains as to how this information can be used by journalists. Even though more large datasets are being released, such as WikiLeaks and the Afghan war logs, and the use of such data is already beyond elite organizations (NODA 2018), data journalism remains only a small subset of journalism, existing only in precarious forms in newspapers and news organizations (Coddington, 2018).

On the other hand, the abundance of fake news, scams and misinformation, has initiated research and actions to improve opinion polls and monitor and trace the use and origins of junk news and misinformation in political elections. Besides, new research on emotions and information about users available through several devices provide also new opportunities for news personalized systems, which can now be enriched and offer readers more diversified and targeted media content.

NODA19 invites papers that address a range of theoretical or methodological issues, including but not limited to:

• Artificial intelligence and automation, both in content production and distribution;
• New approaches to investigative journalism;
• Personalised or recommended news;
• Extended context: adding psychological constructs such as personality and emotions to personalization;
• Challenges in content echo chambers;
• Data analysis;
• Visualisation of news;
• Storytelling in the big data era;
• User experience design and news gamification
• Data literacy;
• Fake news: fact checking and verification practices in data journalism, bots, scams and misinformation;
• Potentials and risks of social media profiling;
• The sustainability of data journalism beyond legacy organizations, such as hyperlocal data journalism;
• Open data, freedom of information, legislation and data journalism;
• Audience engagement, interaction and consumption of data journalism content;
• Data as a value generator;
Cross-disciplinary studies are encouraged to be presented, where journalism intersects other research fields such as media, data science, artificial intelligence, interaction design, gaming, business and administration or political science.

Extended abstracts for papers (500 -750 words, in a Scandinavian language or English) can be submitted until November 19th, 2018. The abstracts will be peer-reviewed.

Acceptance notifications will be sent out mid-December 2018.
