Instituto Serrapilheira and ICFJ call for Brazilian journalists interested in investigating who finances scientific disinformation

"Fake news in the science universe is dangerously popular. Misleading data about drugs and vaccines became even more common in the COVID-19 pandemic, but misinformation about biology, chemistry, physics, computer science and mathematics also goes viral with force, often hand-in-hand with fake studies and low-quality research.

It was because of this scenario that the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and the Serrapilheira Institute sealed a partnership to support collaborative feature stories - conducted by Brazilian journalists, communicators and/or researchers - that seek to investigate who finances disinformation in science and how to combat it. The deadline for entries will be from Jan. 17 to Feb. 5, 2023."
