AuthentiSci is an online tool that allows scientists to work together to verify the validity of scientific information in media articles that are accessible to the public.
It was created by a team of scientists during the 2020 online Sciathon, organised by the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings organization. The Sciathon, based on the hackathon concept, gives teams of scientists 48 hours to design a solution to address global, science-based issues. In particular, we decided to address the Lindau Guidelines, which aim to foster global, sustainable, cooperative, and open science.
The AuthentiSci team is composed of eight scientists with research expertise across a broad scope of scientific disciplines and a strong desire to communicate reliable science to the world.
