2021 Zenodo  
The COVID-19 pandemic has made the dangers of the spread of misinformation obvious but despite much global effort to curbing its spread, fake information about the pandemic keeps proliferating. In this paper, we address the development of automated methods for verification of claims about COVID-19 and discuss the challenges associated with this task. We focus on labeled data collection, limitations of existing models, and difficulties of applying misinformation detection models in practical

Harmonization Challenges in Data Collection of COVID-19 Misinformation

Drahomira Herrmannova, Gautam Thakur, Joshua N. Grant, Varisara Tansakul, Bryan Eaton, Olivera Kotevska, Jordan Burdette, Martin Smyth, Monica Smith
2021 Zenodo  
Misinformation surrounding COVID-19 poses a serious threat to human life. The collection, categorization, and harmonization of misinformation are crucially needed to understand the impacts of the distribution of false or misleading information on public safety and human health. Identifying data sources to collect misinformation requires initial review to evaluate if the fact-checking website reports fact-checking information in useful manners for downstream harmonization and analysis.

The harmonization of collected information allows for the creation of a rich dataset allowing for insights to be drawn from multiple fact-checking websites, such as understanding the spread of misinformation around the world. The collected information from websites has various data schemas regarding claims and original sources of the (mis)information. Due to this challenge, manual effort is required for reviewing and determining the appropriate categories for the unharmonized data. The categorization and harmonization challenges become apparent as more data from more websites are collected.

Recruitment of practices in primary care research: the long and the short of it

Recruitment of practices in primary care research: the long and the short of it. Family Practice 2009; 26: 128-136. Objective. To determine factors that facilitated or hindered recruitment of general practices into a large New Zealand primary care project that aimed to determine general practice characteristics of immunization coverage. Methods. The project had a multi-level recruitment strategy requiring recruitment of randomly selected practices before randomly selecting GPs, practice nurses

Post-recruitment, recruiters underwent semi-structured interviews. Analysis was mixed method, with triangulation of descriptive statistics of the number of calls and time course to recruitment and general inductive thematic analysis of qualitative data. Results. Identifying key decision makers and how individual practice processes work can save significant recruitment time. Factors identified as assisting practice recruitment included using a personal approach from doctor to doctor, getting buy-in from all practice staff, streamlining the research process to minimize disruption to the practice and flexibility to accommodate practices. Conclusions. The task of recruiting should not be underestimated. Adequate time and resource need to be allocated from the onset. Long periods where practices have no added burdens such as audits, mass vaccination programmes or influenza season are unlikely, therefore there are always considerable challenges in recruiting practices for research. Remaining flexible to individual practice styles and influences and acknowledging the commitment of participants is important.
