The OpEd Project

June 22, 2017

The OpEd Project
http://theopedproject.org/

The OpEd Project’s mission is to increase the range of voices and quality of ideas we hear in the world. A starting goal is to increase the number of women thought leaders in key commentary forums to a tipping point. We envision a world where the best ideas – regardless of where they come from – will have a chance to be heard, and to shape society and the world. Working with top universities, foundations, think tanks, nonprofits, corporations and community organizations, we scout and train under-represented experts to take thought leadership positions in their fields; we connect them with our national network of high-level media mentors; and we vet and channel the best new experts and ideas directly to media gatekeepers who need them, across all platforms. The OpEd Project is an Echoing Green Project. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

Algorithms, Automation and News
http://www.algorithmic.news/

Algorithms and automation increasingly are connected to many aspects of news production, distribution, and consumption. We invite original, unpublished papers to address such issues at an international conference to be held at the Center for Advanced Studies, LMU Munich, May 22-23, 2018 — shortly before the ICA annual convention in Prague, not far from Munich. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, there will be no conference fee, and free hotel accommodation will be provided for presenters, in addition to opportunities for need-based travel stipends. Select papers from the conference will be published in a special issue of Digital Journalism as well as a proposed edited volume. On this site, you will find the complete CfP, the timeline of events, and details regarding speakers and organizers. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Purdue Owl: White Papers

May 23, 2017

Purdue Owl: White Papers
https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/546/1

According to the Purdue Owl, a “white paper” is “a certain type of report that is distinctive in terms of purpose, audience, and organization.” The term originates from early twentieth century Great Britain, where it was used to describe to an official government document designed to outline a particular viewpoint and provide supportive evidence and information. Today, the term is used more broadly in the business and nonprofit world to describe similar publications that are intended not for commercial use, but to advocate an official position or solution. Like all forms of writing, white papers come with their own established norms, and Purdue Owl offers this website that outlines these norms and expectations. In Organization and Other Tips, visitors will find a brief, one-page summary of the major components of white papers. This section also includes a detailed PowerPoint presentation that provides information about the purpose and mechanics of white papers in greater detail. This presentation, 25 slides in length, is free to download and might easily be incorporated into a meeting or professional development session.

VISUAL INVESTIGATIVE SCENARIOS (VIS)
https://vis.occrp.org/

(VIS) is a data visualization platform designed to assist investigative journalists, activists and others in mapping complex business or crime networks. Their aim is to help investigators understand and explain corruption, organized crime and other wrongdoings and to translate complex narratives into simple, universal visual language. VIS provides professionally designed, customizable, dynamic html5 visualization templates allowing you to illustrate entities, networks and complex configurations of data. Visualizations can be exported for use in online, print or broadcast media. VIS emerged from the need of investigative reporters at the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and RISE Project to make their in-depth cross-border investigations understandable to a wider public. Their goal is to simplify and enhance work and, at the same time, help the public understand and access data quickly and easily. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

Scrivener for Windows and iOS – Powerful Content-Generation Tool

Scrivener for Windows and iOS – Powerful Content-Generation Tool
https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.php

Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers that allows you to concentrate on composing and structuring long and difficult documents. While it gives you complete control of the formatting, its focus is on helping you get to the end of that awkward first draft. Writing a novel, research paper, script or any long-form text involves more than hammering away at the keys until you’re done. Collecting research, ordering fragmented ideas, shuffling index cards in search of that elusive structure—most writing software is fired up only after much of the hard work is over. Enter Scrivener: a word processor and project management tool that stays with you from that first, unformed idea all the way through to the final draft. Outline and structure your ideas, take notes, view research alongside your writing and compose the constituent pieces of your text in isolation or in context. Scrivener won’t tell you how to write—it just makes all the tools you have scattered around your desk available in one application. Scrivener puts everything you need for structuring, writing and editing long documents at your fingertips. On the left of the window, the “binder” allows you to navigate between the different parts of your manuscript, your notes, and research materials, with ease. Break your text into pieces as small or large as you want—so you can forget wrestling with one long document. Restructuring your draft is as simple as drag and drop. Select a single document to edit a section of your manuscript in isolation, or use “Scrivenings” mode to work on multiple sections as though they were one: Scrivener makes it easy to switch between focusing on the details and stepping back to get a wider view of your composition. With access to a powerful underlying text engine, you can add tables, bullet points, images and mark up your text with comments and footnotes. Format as you go using the format bar at the top of the page, or use any font you want for the writing and let Scrivener reformat your manuscript after you’re done—allowing you to concentrate on the words rather than their presentation.
