This final 2015 edition will assess the year of 2015 ahead of the new year and will focus on how digital journalism can open up conversations about ethics, collaborative research and how the industry can take advantage of technology in innovative reporting.

The heart of Checkdesk is the simple chronologically ordered log of the reporting teams entries.
