The Open Notebook

Since 2010, The Open Notebook project has been providing educational tools and resources to sharpen the professional skills of science journalists at all experience levels. It’s home to detailed interviews with science journalists who dissect their own story-creation process, deep reported features on the challenges of the craft, “day in the life” features where science journalists share their habits and tricks, and even an advice column and a pitch database giving examples of successful feature queries.

It’s a fantastic resource for science journalists, whether they’re veterans or greenhorns, which is why the Knight Science Journalism program at MIT is a flagship supporter of the effort.

Visit The Open Notebook for the full complement of resources and insights on offer, and keep an eye out on KSJ@MIT’s own Dispatches blog for regular cross-posting of Open Notebook materials.
