Making the News: Digital Creativity Support for Journalists

Maiden, N., Brock, G., Zachos, K. and Brown, A. (2018). Making the News: Digital Creativity Support for Journalists. Paper presented at the CHI ’18, 21 - 26 April 2018, Montreal, Canada.


This paper reports the design and first evaluations of new
digital support for journalists to discover and examine creative angles on news stories under development. The support integrated creative news search algorithms, interactive creative sparks and reusable concept cards into one daily work tool of journalists. The first evaluations of INJECT by journalists in their places of work to write published news stories revealed that the journalists generated new angles on existing stories rather than new stories, changed their writing behaviour, and reported evidence that INJECT use had the potential to increase the objectivity and the boldness of journalism methods used.
