Open journalism is a phrase that has crept into the news industry’s vocabulary over the past few months and which has recently been given a substantial boost by the Guardian in the UK, whose open journalism efforts were marked by an “Open Weekend” held at the paper at the end of March.

We have drawn together the leading arguments around the issue and collected key examples of open journalism that highlight different approaches from very different types of news organisations.

> Non-members as well as members can download the first chapter of the report free of charge as an Executive Summary.
