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 thought up and developed by a team of scientists during the 2020 online Sciathon, organised by the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting Organization. The Sciathon, based on the concept of a Hackathon, gives 48 hours to different teams of scientists to come up with 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 with a strong will to communicate reliable science to the world.
