“Misinformation / Disinformation Studies”

In this issue of Estudos de Jornalismo Journal, we propose to take a look at the problem of disinformation/misinformation, “fake news” and manipulation. The emphasis on disinformation/misinformation is more than ever justified by the proliferation of phenomena related to it and by the risks involved in public dialogue and decision-making in areas such as politics, economics, culture, science and the journalistic field itself. Unpublished papers are accepted that present research results and/or theoretical reflection on, among others:

- Disinformation and “false news” in national, regional, local and community contexts;

- Disinformation processes and new gatekeepers capable of spreading false information virally;

- New gatekeeping processes: algorithms, polarization and filter bubbles;

- Journalistic practices, objectivity and distance in contexts of proximity information;

- The role and perceptions of audiences and audiences on issues related to misinformation and “false news”;

- Social media and the selective sharing of news in disinformation processes;

- Media literacy strategies as an element to prevent and combat disinformation;

- New or reformulated theoretical, experimental and methodological approaches to the study of disinformation processes.

Papers must be submitted through the email (revistaestudosjornalismo /at/ <mailto:(revistaestudosjornalismo /at/>, as well as any questions.

Publication rules and other instructions for authors can be found in the appropriate section.
