Novel Science (NS) is a science communication project focusing on efforts to influence or manipulate the public via social and traditional media.
We have a monthly disinformation newsletter that tells readers about the latest emerging threats, disinformation narratives, fact checks, research, and recommended reads related to public influence efforts.
Hoaxlines is our public database of mis/mal/disinformation that went live in January of 2021. The original format is being retired after a year of use so we can implement what we learned and improve data quality.
The database contains records related to falsehoods spread through media manipulation. The database is a work in progress so our coding is undergoing changes, but we’ve decided to keep the database public in the interim.
The database may be more helpful to researchers, journalists, and intelligence professionals whereas the newsletter may be more helpful to lay readers.
Key differences users will notice is the focus on a single claim or narrative rather than single articles. We have largely implemented the framework used by the Media Manipulation Casebook.
The Media Manipulation Casebook is a digital research platform linking together theory, methods, and practice for mapping media manipulation and disinformation campaigns. This resource is intended for researchers, journalists, technologists, policymakers, educators, and civil society organizers who want to learn about detecting, documenting, describing, and debunking misinformation.
