Investigative Reporters and Editors
Investigative Reporters and Editors is a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of investigative reporting. IRE was formed in 1975 to create a forum in which journalists throughout the world could help each other by sharing story ideas, newsgathering techniques and news sources.
IRE provides members access to thousands of reporting tip sheets and other materials through its resource centre and hosts conferences and specialized training throughout the United States. Programs of IRE include the National Institute for Computer Assisted Reporting.
