New paper in Communications Psychology

My latest paper with Li Qian Tay and colleagues, “Thinking clearly about misinformation”, has just been accepted for publication in Communications Psychology. The abstract for the paper is below:

There is concern that many social problems in Western societies have been caused by misinformation. However, some researchers argue that misinformation is merely a symptom of such problems. We argue that (1) this is a false dichotomy, (2) misinformation has had clear impacts, and (3) researchers should consider the different dimensions of misinformation when making such evaluations.
