Research Tools: “The Investigator’s Handbook: A Guide to Using OpenCorporates”

From Open Corporates:

OpenCorporates relies on the data we make available being converted into information by investigative journalists, researchers and analysts. While ensuring company data is easily accessible is a large enough task, the people who weave together narratives from that data are just as vital to our mission of fighting corruption and organised crime.

This guide is a living handbook, providing resources and inspiration to help investigators use OpenCorporates to explore the corporate world. Although intended for investigators, we hope all API users will find it to be helpful.

If there’s anything we’ve missed, or you’d like to access our data for an investigation we’d love to hear from you (email community at opencorporates.com).
