Trusting News – RJU Research Project

November 16, 2018

Trusting News – RJU Research Project
https://www.rjionline.org/stories/series/trusting-news

How do people decide what news is trustworthy? How can journalists influence what users consume and share on social media? And in the era of fake stories, when untruths often travel faster than the truth, what can credible journalists do to stand out? When they began the Trusting News project in January 2016, they had no idea how the presidential campaign would evolve. They didn’t know the intentional spread of false information would play an even larger role in the information climate. They didn’t know Facebook’s algorithm would move toward favoring posts shared by individuals over those shared by pages, making it all the more important that news consumers help spread our content. They just knew the issue of reclaiming the credibility of journalism was worthy of focused attention. The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute engages media professionals, scholars and other citizens in programs aimed at strengthening journalism in the service of democracy. RJI generates and tests new techniques and new thinking that promise to improve journalism. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

NewsGuard – Restoring Trust & Accountability

November 15, 2018

NewsGuard – Restoring Trust & Accountability
https://www.newsguardtech.com/

NewsGuard uses journalism to fight false news, misinformation, and disinformation. Their trained analysts, who are experienced journalists, research online news brands to help readers and viewers know which ones are trying to do legitimate journalism—and which are not. Their Green-Red ratings signal if a website is trying to get it right or instead has a hidden agenda or knowingly publishes falsehoods or propaganda. Readers have more context for their news online. And advertisers worried about their brands’ reputations keep their ads off unreliable news sites. NewsGuard also provides “Nutrition Label” write-ups on all the news and information websites among the 4,500 sites that account for 98% of online engagement in the U.S., in English. A SWAT team of NewsGuard analysts operates 24/7 to identify suddenly trending purveyors of unreliable news among sites that NewsGuard has not yet rated and warn internet users about them in real time. After launching in the U.S., NewsGuard will expand to serve the billions of people globally who get news online. Their goal is to give everyone the information they need to be better informed about which news sources they can rely on—or can’t rely on. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

https://www.journalism.cuny.edu/centers/tow-knight-center-entrepreneurial-journalism/news-integrity-initiative/

The News Integrity Initiative at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York is a $14 million fund supporting efforts to connect journalists, technologists, academic institutions, non-profits, and other organizations from around the world to foster informed and engaged communities, combat media manipulation, and support inclusive, constructive, and respectful civic discourse. They envision a world in which people are armed with accurate, comprehensive news and information that strengthens their sense of ownership and opportunities in the places where they live and work, empowers them to participate in community decision-making, and deepens their understanding of and empathy for people of all backgrounds and experiences. Through grants, applied research, events, and other activities, NII, the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism and our partners around the world will build bridges between the public and journalists to foster collaboration and develop mutual respect and trust. This includes helping journalists learn new ways to listen to, empathize with, and reflect the needs and goals of the communities they serve. We will prioritize work that meaningfully represents and reaches diverse communities. Additionally, we will help news organizations bring journalism to the public where they are, in conversations on many platforms. They will examine new ways to achieve news literacy, broadly defined, and investigate the roots of trust and mistrust in news, as well as the influence and impact of manipulation and misinformation on the public conversation. NII also will extend the longstanding work of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism’s efforts to build bridges between platforms and publishers, encouraging and supporting collaboration in service of the public and of journalism. The News Integrity Initiative is a project of the Foundation for the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism under the auspices of the school’s Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism. The fund is seeded with $14 million in grants from a coalition of partners, which currently include Facebook, Craig Newmark Philanthropic Fund, Ford Foundation, AppNexus, Knight Foundation, Tow Foundation, Betaworks, Mozilla, and Democracy Fund.

Publons

The peer review process is an essential part of publishing high-quality academic research, but it can be a time-consuming, thankless task, which often slows publication. One organization trying to change this is Publons, a company which “turn[s] peer review into a measurable indicator of a researcher’s expertise and contributions to their field” as part of their mission to “speed up research by harnessing the power of peer review.” Here, academic researchers can create a free profile and “import, verify, and store a record of every peer review [they] perform and every manuscript [they] handle as an editor, for any journal in the world, in full compliance with all editorial policies.” Interested visitors can browse the more than 400,000 participating researchers as well as an extensive FAQ section detailing how Publons works for reviewers, editors, and publishers. Early-career researchers may want to check out Publons Academy, a free online course found under the actions tab. Publons was founded in 2012 in New Zealand by physicist Andrew Preston and social scientist Daniel Johnston. In 2017 it was acquired by Clarivate Analytics, the parent company of Web of Science, and that same year Publons won the ALPSP Innovation in Publishing Award.
