The IRE Journal

The IRE Journal, the award-winning magazine of Investigative Reporters & Editors, is published four times a year and contains how-to stories, investigative ideas, FOIA tips and more. Our audience is journalists from all media, journalism educators or students who want to hone their investigative skills — from tried-and-true watchdog fundamentals to the latest innovations that help you get the story. The answers come from the reporters, editors or producers writing in the Journal about their own experiences with investigative projects.

Each print issue offers several centerpiece stories exploring the techniques behind investigations on a single theme, chosen to reflect major news trends, outstanding investigative work and core topics relevant to journalists.

The Journal is included with IRE membership. Members may download full, archived issues of the the Journal.

Back issues of The IRE Journal may be purchased for $10 each. An additional $10 user fee is charged to nonmembers. Contact the Resource Center at 573-882-3364 to check on availability.
