dc.description.abstractThis article outlines a general epistemological framework of data journalism in the devolved nations of the UK. By using an original model based on three conceptual lenses—materiality, performativity and reflexivity—this study examines the development of this form of journalism, the challenges it faces, and its particularities in the context of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. This research therefore offers unique insights from semi-structured interviews with data journalists and data editors based at, or working as freelancers for, the mainstream news organisations of these regions. The results suggest that data journalism in these devolved nations displays a distinctive character just as much as it reinforces the norms and rituals of the legacy organisations that pioneered this practice. Whilst various models of data exploitation are tested, regional data journalists creatively circumvent generalised organisational struggles to lay the groundwork for their trade and professional community.en_UK
