A Field Guide to 'Fake News' and other information disorders

Public Data Lab and First Draft collaborated to develop this free, open-access guide to help students, journalists and researchers investigate misleading and viral content, memes and trolling practices online. The five chapters of the guide describe a series of research protocols or “recipes” that can be used to trace trolling practices, the ways false viral news and memes circulate online, and the commercial underpinnings of problematic content. Each recipe provides an accessible overview of the key steps, methods, techniques and datasets used.
