Duke Project for the Advancement of Public Affairs Reporting /The Reporter's LabExecutive summaryThe Duke Project for the Advancement of Public Affairs Reporting, dubbed the Reporter's Lab, tackles common and difficult problems in the reporting phase of accountability journalism while contributing to the research and transparency communities. The project includes four elements: 1. Adapt existing technological advances in other disciplines to address inefficiencies in public affairs journalism by creating, curating and deploying free, open source tools for reporters, both as software and as hosted services.2. Produce news and reviews of reporting techniques and advances, including tests of open source and commercial tools for public affairs reporting based on real-life document and data collections.3. Contribute to research in information and computer science, social sciences and digital humanities and encourage work on public affairs reporting techniques and technology needs. 4. Research public records practices and consult with journalists and government to reduce the need for technological workarounds.The project's success will mean that, in the future, one reporter might point the lab's video service at the local county council webcast to get a searchable copy on a desktop widget.
