Dezimatrix has a goal to foster and inspire science communication on the topic of online disinformation across different fields of study.
This is a very ambitious goal with lots of pitfalls and dead ends to overcome and dodge with a very rewarding outcome for the whole society if executed well and with a bit of luck.
When thinking about where to start, we decided to start with the basics and work our way up through the reputation of our information service.
We understand that we can’t rely only on top researchers and claim their abstracts and preprints for sharing in our research community. To gain traction we need a target group of researchers whom we can already provide the highest added value and be useful for.
This initial target group is the producers of gray literature at universities with academic research projects and graduate thesis, because this is where most of research on the subject of disinformation takes place nowadays.
It’s also the biggest resource of future specialists and top researchers that Dezimatrix can grow with.
We invite faculty staff and students for cooperation on the online disinformation, information operations and counterfeit reality topics.
If you are a faculty member responsible for graduation thesis, become our Honorary Fellow ambassador and share the Dezimatrix topic and resources with your students. We will help you to source thesis topics, mentors and thesis opponents for your students as well as be a solid source of information for their research.
If you are a student working on a graduation thesis, join our Dezimatrix community as a Fellow or Active Fellow and share your sources with us or find new interesting sources curated by Dezimatrix for your own research.
Join us at Dezimatrix, become a Dezimatrix Fellow and help us on our mission.
