In this book, Story-based inquiry: A manual for investigative journalists, authors Mark Lee Hunter, Nils Hanson, Rana Sabbagh, Luuk Sengers, Drew Sullivan, Flemming Tait Svith and Pia Thordsen present detailed, systematic and practical processes and procedures through which journalists can engage in investigative reporting.
