Investigative computer-assisted reporting, or deep CAR, has evolved in the United States over the past decade. In that time, the academy and industry have come to recognise it as a valuable tool for journalists. This paper considers the situation in Australia. It used a phone study and an e-mail survey to discover the extent of knowledge about deep CAR in Australia and whether it is being taught in journalism courses.
