Novel Science (NS) is a science communication project at the intersection of science and society, with a special focus on efforts to influence or manipulate the public.
We have a 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. We’re learning as we go and improving the database along the way.
The database may be more helpful to researchers, journalists, and intelligence professionals whereas the newsletter may be more helpful to lay readers.
If you know of an article or a narrative that belongs in the database, please help by letting us know. Click the button “Submit a Story” and fill out the prompts. It is OK if you aren’t sure something is false or misleading but want us to take a look.
