Assignment 2: Information Ethics lemlichc

Falsification:

Couronne, Ivan. ‘Real’ fake research hoodwinks US journals. Phys.org. 7 December 2018. https://phys.org/news/2018-10-real-fake-hoodwinks-journals.html.

I liked this source because it kind of debunked people who wrote articles on basically information that didn’t exist or false information all together. It gives an example of someone who wrote an article on Dog Parks and why they’re “Petri dishes for canine ‘rape culture.” Supposedly there was a lot of research done but it turns out it was all fake. I think this gave a good example of falsification because all of the examples given were of false studies and information.
