Noteworthy, a new investigative journalism platform from TheJournal.ie, launched this month.
The platform is designed to find, fund, and undertake in-depth journalism on topics that you want to see tackled. You can submit an idea for a story, which may then be turned into a proposal by Noteworthy's team.
Investigative journalism requires a sufficient investment of both time and money. Noteworthy is a collaboration between the public and reporters. Not only can you submit ideas, but you can also fund proposals that you would like to see investigated. You can browse the proposals that are actively seeking funding here.
As ideas are submitted by the public, Noteworthy covers a diverse range of topics. Whether it's an investigation into why it takes more than two years to get early intervention appointments for some children, or a look at the Defence Forces' year-long mental health care crisis, or this in-depth report on a worrying fall in meningitis vaccination rates, you can find reports and similar proposals on Noteworthy. If you would like to read more of Noteworthy's work to date, you can find completed projects on the Articles page.
The Noteworthy website is currently in beta and you can email website suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about Noteworthy can be found on the About Us page.
