LLRX> Spotting Fake – Best Practices for Authenticating Trustworthy News Sources
https://www.bespacific.com/new-on-llrx-spotting-fake-best-practices-for-authenticating-trustworthy-news-sources/

Genevieve Zook’s guide to fake news takes a multifaceted, long view of the history of spreading misinformation, through word of mouth to the acceleration of this activity through social media. Zook identifies examples in which fake news impacts different disciplines, diverse topics and subject matter. She references the survey data gathered by reliable organizations that assist us in better understanding the dimensions of this issue. And vitally, Zook documents actionable resources, many of which are authored by law librarians, to facilitate our ability to make sound decisions, exercise our critical skills, and deliver expert services to our users and customers moving forward.

The OpEd Project

June 22, 2017

The OpEd Project
http://theopedproject.org/

The OpEd Project’s mission is to increase the range of voices and quality of ideas we hear in the world. A starting goal is to increase the number of women thought leaders in key commentary forums to a tipping point. We envision a world where the best ideas – regardless of where they come from – will have a chance to be heard, and to shape society and the world. Working with top universities, foundations, think tanks, nonprofits, corporations and community organizations, we scout and train under-represented experts to take thought leadership positions in their fields; we connect them with our national network of high-level media mentors; and we vet and channel the best new experts and ideas directly to media gatekeepers who need them, across all platforms. The OpEd Project is an Echoing Green Project. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

Algorithms, Automation and News
http://www.algorithmic.news/

Algorithms and automation increasingly are connected to many aspects of news production, distribution, and consumption. We invite original, unpublished papers to address such issues at an international conference to be held at the Center for Advanced Studies, LMU Munich, May 22-23, 2018 — shortly before the ICA annual convention in Prague, not far from Munich. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, there will be no conference fee, and free hotel accommodation will be provided for presenters, in addition to opportunities for need-based travel stipends. Select papers from the conference will be published in a special issue of Digital Journalism as well as a proposed edited volume. On this site, you will find the complete CfP, the timeline of events, and details regarding speakers and organizers. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Purdue Owl: White Papers

Purdue Owl: White Papers
https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/546/1

According to the Purdue Owl, a “white paper” is “a certain type of report that is distinctive in terms of purpose, audience, and organization.” The term originates from early twentieth century Great Britain, where it was used to describe to an official government document designed to outline a particular viewpoint and provide supportive evidence and information. Today, the term is used more broadly in the business and nonprofit world to describe similar publications that are intended not for commercial use, but to advocate an official position or solution. Like all forms of writing, white papers come with their own established norms, and Purdue Owl offers this website that outlines these norms and expectations. In Organization and Other Tips, visitors will find a brief, one-page summary of the major components of white papers. This section also includes a detailed PowerPoint presentation that provides information about the purpose and mechanics of white papers in greater detail. This presentation, 25 slides in length, is free to download and might easily be incorporated into a meeting or professional development session.

Journalists and journalism students of all stripes may be interested in the Nieman Journalism Lab, “an attempt to help journalism figure out its future in an Internet age.” Established in 2008 by veteran journalist Joshua Benton, the Lab is part of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University, which was founded in 1938 to provide fellowship to innovative journalists, of whom Benton was one such honoree. On this frequently updated website, visitors will find a number of new stories about journalism, social media, and technology, three areas that are becoming increasingly intertwined. Recent news stories include a feature about how STAT, a publication that focuses on health news, will now have a print section in the Sunday Boston Globe, and an investigation of the Argentine newspaper La Nacion, which has become a major proponent and actor in the open data movement. Readers interested in receiving daily email updates from the Nieman Lab will want to sign up for The Digest. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

VISUAL INVESTIGATIVE SCENARIOS (VIS)
https://vis.occrp.org/

(VIS) is a data visualization platform designed to assist investigative journalists, activists and others in mapping complex business or crime networks. Their aim is to help investigators understand and explain corruption, organized crime and other wrongdoings and to translate complex narratives into simple, universal visual language. VIS provides professionally designed, customizable, dynamic html5 visualization templates allowing you to illustrate entities, networks and complex configurations of data. Visualizations can be exported for use in online, print or broadcast media. VIS emerged from the need of investigative reporters at the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and RISE Project to make their in-depth cross-border investigations understandable to a wider public. Their goal is to simplify and enhance work and, at the same time, help the public understand and access data quickly and easily. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.
