We’re happy to unveil the fact-checking tools database!
The database, which was conceived at a meeting during Global Fact 9 in Oslo, contains a list of tools connected to various parts of the fact-checking process, including the identification and verification of claims, as well as the distribution of fact-checks. The database was compiled by NORDIS member Laurence Dierickx (UiB) by joining a labelled dataset collected by the SCAM project at Oslo Metropolitan University with a dataset collected by the NORDIS UiB team.
In the coming months, we will refine this database and use it as a starting point for a systematic review of fact-checking tools. The reviews will be carried out in cooperation with other European fact-checking organizations.
