Guide: Getting Ready for Index and NewsMatch Reporting (2023)
Unique links for the INN Index will be distributed to newsrooms via email on January 3, 2024. Survey responses are due by January 29, 2024 at 11:59 p.m.
NewsMatch is fully integrated into the INN Index, the annual survey INN members complete each year for a collective benefit. Survey data leads to more awareness, funding and support for nonprofit news, and better benchmarking data for members.
