Hoaxlines is a project from Novel Science researching media manipulation and unethical efforts to influence the public. Novel Science is the larger umbrella project under which we have had a COVID dashboard, Ukraine dashboard, and the Hoaxlines disinformation database.
Although falsehoods have always existed, today, bad actors have powerful tools and tactics that give them unprecedented impact. We strive to alert in real-time, translate our findings into concrete policy recommendations, and create resources that help the public face information disorder.
