The IRE Journal, the award-winning magazine of Investigative Reporters & Editors, is published four times a year and contains journalist profiles, how-to stories, reviews, investigative ideas and backgrounding tips. Our audience is journalists from all media, journalism educators or students who want to hone their investigative skills — from tried-and-true Watchdog fundamentals to the latest innovations that help you get the story. The answers come from the reporters, editors or producers writing in the Journal about their own experiences with investigative projects.
Those of you interested in digging deeper might want to start exploring some of the resources on this page to help you start developing a "documents state of mind."
Mark Horvit is the Executive Director for Investigative Reporters and Editors, and Associate Professor at the Missouri School of Journalism.
