International Workshop on "Science Breakthroughs: Paid News, Fake News and Ethics"
CSIR-NISCAIR organised an international Workshop on "Science Breakthroughs: Paid News, Fake News and Ethics" during 20-22 February 2019 in New Delhi, in collaboration with the Association of Academies and Societies of Sciences in Asia (AASSA) and the Indian National Science Academy (INSA).
The tentacles of the all pervasive paid and fake news are spreading to science breakthroughs as well. This undesirable spread has adverse repercussions on all stakeholders including researchers, scientists, science communicators, students and the lay public. The workshop was organised to share, discuss, brainstorm and find solutions.
