Getting started

Aleph is a powerful data engine built with investigative reporting in mind. It combines different types of data into a simple search interface.

With Aleph, organisations can put all kinds of data - from a procurement dataset to a leaked trove of emails - into a single place. This documentation helps people who want to search, upload or navigate data on Aleph.

Part of the Aleph toolkit is also VIS Desktop, a tool to sketch out networks of companies, people and their relationships on your own computer.

There's also a section for developers and people who want to run their own Aleph system.

If you have problems using Aleph, or want to suggest some future extensions for the toolkit, join our community and chime in:
