/ Research & Referencing Help / Fact-checking Websites
It has been an imperative need for quite some years - and especially nowadays that the influence of AI, misinformation, disinformation, and fake news is more evident - that students should always check the news / photos / videos they find over the internet for information on their research papers.
Therefore, here are some fact-checking tools you may find useful for double-checking your resources before using them!
TinEye : this online tool is a reverse image search, for checking the credibility and the authenticity of images you find on the web.
Ellinika Hoaxes : this website informs you about the authenticity of the news produced and circulated in Greece.
EU Fact Check : this website informs you about the authenticity of the news produced and circulated in Europe.
Factcheck.org : this website informs you about the authenticity of the news produced and circulated in the United States of America.
InVID verification plugin : this plugin can be installed on your browser and instantly let you know if the video you are watching is fake or authentic.
Be sure to check them out and use them each time you are not sure about the origin of a source, or you simply want to verify what you are reading and/or watching.
