The Investigative Reporters and Editors conference took place in mid-June in New Orleans, and one of the sessions at the event looked at open-source tools for investigations.

This 'Steal my tool' session highlighted a number of useful open-source investigative platforms, which Sam Berkhead, engagement editor at IJNet, listed in this article published after the conference.

It includes a mix of tools that can be used almost out of the box, and some which need to be tweaked for each individual patch – but make sure you take a look at the list to see if any can help your investigations.
