Journalists in Brazil, Latin America and beyond are using an innovative new tool launched by an ICFJ Knight Fellow to combat misinformation and better report on the pandemic. Science Pulse, which makes it easier for reporters to find scientific experts and content, is the only tool of its kind designed expressly for journalists.
A project of ICFJ Knight Fellow Sérgio Spagnuolo, Science Pulse aggregates English, Spanish and Portuguese social media posts from scientists, scientific organizations and other experts in its database. Rather than wade through Twitter and Facebook feeds, journalists can now use Science Pulse’s tools to stay on top of the latest research and other scientific news shared on social media. Science Pulse offers users four main tools — a newsletter, website and Twitter and Telegram bots that automatically find and share prominent scientific news with users.
