How can I use INJECT?
INJECT will be integrated into the text editor you currently use. It runs on 4 text editors, including GoogleDocs, WordPress, as a TinyMCE plugin and as a standalone web application. INJECT will be available as a generic tool, searching through 1.5 million news sources.
INJECT can also be customised according to your newsroom’s needs. Do you wish to add your own archives? Search through specific sources that your journalists use regularly?
Contact us to see how we could create the INJECT version that’s adapted to your needs.
When is INJECT available?
INJECT will be available soon. We are currently further developing the core features, working closely together with journalists and newspapers partaking in the project. Three Norwegian newspapers are piloting the tool in their newsroom and journalists across Europe are testing the tool to make it more useful and precise.
Contact us if you are interested in testing the tool: firstname.lastname@example.org.

How does INJECT work?
INJECT offers a new tool for online queries beyond conventional search engines. Using creativity techniques based on Natural Language Processing (NLP), reporters can research widely and quickly in databases to deliver new angles, sources and data. The integration of the ‘Explaain’ project will offer explanatory ‘cards’ or footnotes.
Information now flows through our lives 24/7. Journalists increasingly feel the pressure of having to produce stories for an ongoing news cycle, while quality and original reporting have become bigger challenges. More than ever, reporters must select, verify and account for their facts.
INJECT goes beyond conventional search engines. It helps you quickly find unexpected angles for your story and allows you to start building your article instantly, without the need to switch between documents or browser tabs. This helps you to continue to produce quality journalism, even under increasingly tight deadlines.
Where did INJECT start?
INJECT incorporates the ‘Juice’ project started in 2016 at City, University of London, as a collaboration between the Human-Computer Interaction group at the Cass Business School and the Journalism Department.
Broader research into new tools for journalists won an EU Horizon 2020 grant of €1m, and the INJECT project started its work with 14 organisations across 6 European countries in January 2017.
