AuthentiSci allows scientists to work together to verify scientific information presented in media articles.
Expert reviews are provided by scientists from anywhere in the world and made freely available to readers. Reviews are easily accessed using the browser extension, or through our website.
AuthentiSci originated from concerns that scientific discoveries are sometimes misinterpreted in their translation to mainstream media, which can lead to the spread of misinformation online and reduced public trust in science. We aim to provide a gateway between scientists and society to guide readers, reduce misconceptions and restore trust in science.
Reviews are provided by scientists authenticated through their unique ORCID researcher identification which is linked to their affiliations and published works.
AuthentiSci is a non-profit venture. It has been developed in partnership with Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, and receives funding from Stifterverband.
