How to go beyond the search bar with a deeper level of social media analysis.

This series aims to take misinformation off the menu by revealing the secret ingredients of advanced digital investigation. The recipes provide researchers and journalists with the tools, methods and know-how needed to carry out advanced investigations of their own.

On this page you will find the recipes themselves along with an accompanying series of case study articles that walk you through an investigation carried out by our team. Every recipe uses free, readily-available software, and requires little to no coding knowledge.

The recipes were developed as part of a collaboration between the Public Data Lab, Digital Methods Initiative, Open Intelligence Lab and First Draft. It builds on the Field Guide to “Fake News” and Other Information Disorders and is supported by King’s College London’s Department of Digital Humanities and the AHRC-funded “Infodemic” project.”
