OCCRP’s (Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project) newsroom is entirely distributed, with editors operating in Bosnia, Romania, Georgia, Ukraine, and more. We have a global team of reporters, fact-checkers, researchers, translators, photographers and artists. All of these people are desperately trying to collaborate, but the tools of the trade are e- mail and Word documents, which often get mixed up or forgotten in a process that leads to frustration and wasted effort. To improve the situation, we have started work on an editorial platform, where stories and larger multi-story projects can be kept track of from research to drafting to editing, copy- editing, fact-checking, to translation. With a role-based user interface, each person in OCCRP should have a dashboard where they see the state of each project they’re working on.
