Authored by Lab Director Duncan Watts and coauthors David Rothschild and Markus Mobius, a recent paper titled “Measuring the news and its impact on democracy” has been published in PNAS. The paper proposes an ambitious collective research agenda to measure the origins, nature, and prevalence of misinformation, broadly construed, as well as its impact on democracy. It also outlines illustrative examples of completed, ongoing, or planned research projects that contribute to this agenda. To learn more, read the full paper here, or read Penn Today’s coverage.
