2021 Annual Meeting Keynote | Dr. Laura Helmuth – How to Amplify Knowledge in a World of Misinformation

One of the hottest areas of research right now is on misinformation—because there's just so much to study. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that conspiracy theories, lies, and disinformation are literally deadly. Journalists have been using new knowledge about misinformation to debunk and counter it effectively, as well as cover misinformation as an important subject. Scientists, publishers, journalists and other trustworthy sources are dismissed by bad actors as fake news, and journalists have struggled to combat this narrative and explain how we all know what we know and establish some shared reality. This keynote will cover how journalism has been adapting to compete against misinformation, how the pandemic has changed journalism, and how everyone can help elevate truth (as well as we know it) over lies. || Speakers: Laura Helmuth, PhD, Yael Fitzpatrick

Without dwelling on the tumultuous events of the past year, our 43rd Annual Meeting aimed to recognize their impact, igniting—and sometimes forcing—innovation to meet changing demands. We explored the many new paths that materialize if we are willing to embrace the unexpected. What new insights and strategies have been discovered and implemented? What are the possibilities that have yet to be realized? As we move from reacting to adapting, how will our responses change the future of scholarly communications? And how should our responsibility to the larger academic ecosystem during this extraordinary time shape those responses? If you missed the SSP Annual Meeting, you can purchase individual keynote, plenary, and educational sessions on demand in the SSP OnDemand Video Content Library. You can also purchase an All Access Pass to the content on the Pathable platform through November 1.
