White Paper

By Samiullah Mahdi
Spring 2021 Shorenstein Fellow

The Journalist’s Resource helps journalists and the public get up to speed on academic studies about complex problems and their potential solutions. The goal: more high-quality research in the news stream. 

The HKS Misinformation Review is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes multidisciplinary research on mis- and disinformation on a fast timeline to get important new research into the hands of practitioners who need it.
