Mockup of the NewsFrames platform under development, June 2017.

Our mission is to help you practice collaborative media analysis using tools, methods, and data with others to gain new perspectives on global news production.

The NewsFrames platform is designed to help your team tackle writing projects related to media framing and other nonfiction investigations, large or small. It incorporates our media-related data tools and team checklists, all within a multilingual space.

Reviewing the ever-changing online news environment is challenging and it can’t be done alone.

NewsFrames aims to help you to identify narrative techniques behind the stories you read, as well as to reflect upon your own story writing practices. Your NewsFrames teammates work cooperatively to help you understand complicated data and see the angles you may be missing.

NewsFrames Platform

This is currently under development and an initial version for internal use has been released as of Summer 2017.
