Applied research in computational journalism offers opportunities for scholars to engage with data and platforms by developing original code-based scholarship and research methods. However, scholars who write code need a place to publish about it. This paper suggests new article forms and academic publishing conventions that will allow the field of computational journalism to expand. It explores logistical details associated with sharing and publishing code, and describes reproducible research methods in use in other disciplines.
