Media monitoring, information scanning and intelligence for human rights NGOs

This manual offers advice on information gathering by using search engines, Web alerts, newsletters, RSS feeds, and text mining. It follows the path drawn by the information cycle:

  • a clear view on one’s environment, information assets and needs may guide action and lead to intelligence
  • a specific scanning package with relevant sources will help to know where to search on the web
  • Web information management tools, when carefully selected, will provide an automated support for information monitoring
  • a professional project framework for information scanning activities can draw the way to get good practices and avoid information management pitfalls
