The project features a series of online survey experiments that are designed to understand what intervention procedures could be taken to effectively prevent people from sharing misinformation and to combat the negative effects caused by misinformation.

Study 2 will test the idea of whether there is an optimal match between thesourceand thecontent of correctionmessages for misinformation.
