Investintech.com has partnered with a number of journalism oriented organizations and schools to help data journalists work with the PDF data they need with Able2Extract Professional.
As government agencies and organizations continue to send requested data to journalists in the PDF format, it becomes necessary and increasingly difficult to properly pull and analyze the information needed to report, publish, and present facts with integrity and based on evidence.
This is where we aim to help.
We’ve worked with journalism programs offered by Humber College, Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, and University of King’s College, and have established the Investintech – CAJ Journalism Scholarship with The Canadian Association of Journalists.
Now, we’re proud and honored to announce our latest partnership with DataJournalism.com.
