A few weeks ago I posted a list of 9 great newsletters about data. The post generated so many suggestions of other newsletters that I thought I’d gather them together in a follow-up post. So, here are 9 more newsletters about data journalism, data science, and data visualisation.
1. Graphic Content
Graphic Content is a regular email newsletter — and Tumblr blog — from the head of data and transparency at the Institute for Government, Gavin Freeguard.
The format is simple: a collection of lists to some of the most interesting data visualisation, data journalism and ‘meta data’ (other links about data) that day. You can subscribe to the newsletter here.
Hacks/Hackers is a global network of meetups for journalists (hacks) and developers (hackers) interested in the potential of data for newsgathering and storytelling.
The network also has a weekly email which recently reached its 100th issue. It also rounds up events around the world in the week ahead, jobs, funding and useful links. You can subscribe to it on their blog.
3. Best in Visual Storytelling
Rachel Schallom emailed to let me know about her weekly visual journalism newsletter Best in Visual Storytelling, “which isn’t 100% about data, but includes a ton of data-driven projects.” It arrives on Mondays. The sign-up form is here.
4. Data Elixir
The first of four newsletters suggested by Jeremy Singer-Vine, whose newsletter Data Is Plural featured in the original post, Data Elixir is “a weekly newsletter of curated data science news and resources from around the web” on Tuesdays, from Lon Riesberg. It’s already passed 150 issues.
5. Data Science Weekly
Surpassing that, Data Science Weekly recently hit its 200th issue. It focuses on data science, with news, articles and jobs. The archive covers everything from predicting NFL plays to tutorials on creating a bar chart.
6. Data & Society
Data & Society is a research institute “focused on the social and cultural issues arising from data-centric technological development.”
If you’re interested in the more critical/academic side of data journalism, their newsletter provides updates on their research, events, and other useful links.
7. The Data Science Community newsletter
NYU’s Center for Data Science publishes its own newsletter focused on the data science community and “featuring data science news delivered with humor & snark plus an always popular Tweet of the Week”. The emphasis here is on breadth with lots of detail on each link.
8. data.world Data Digest
Gabriela Swider from data.world – a new platform for sharing and analysing data – got in touch to recommend their Data Digest, which highlights a few of the most interesting datasets on the platform every Friday. Subscribe here.
9. Naked Data
And rounding off the list on a high is Jason Norwood-Young’s newsletter Naked Data — recommended by Anastasia Valeeva. “Sign up for a weekly roundup of the best data journalism projects, news, tech and happenings from around the world,” promises the sign up page. There’s a lot here beyond the usual suspects, and it’s well curated.
If you know of any newsletters not mentioned here or in the previous post, please let me know!
