About the Spotting Mis/Disinformation Project
The Story Behind the Science website is the result of multiple projects coming together with one central purpose: to provide deeply researched, engaging stories of major science topics that explicitly highlight how science works, how scientists think, and the often messy process that leads to the development of scientific knowledge.
