When politics, business and crime cross borders, journalism has to do the same in order to provide adequate coverage. Based upon this simple logic, journalists have experimented with cross-border collaborative journalism for decades, but more intensely so since the late 1990s. Especially, investigative journalists are establishing networks, but mainstreaming of networked journalism is emerging only slowly. In this article I argue that it is time to attempt a methodology of cross-border collaborative journalism in order to more systematically develop the model, to share it with peers and the next generation and to open it for scholars to analyse and criticize. The article is a practitioner’s contribution based upon own experience and a series of interviews with cross-border journalism pioneers.
