Okay, #ica20, let's do this. Here are my thoughts on #openscience and #opencomm for the more qualitative approaches in our field!

(Beware, long thread.)
(Also, please be kind.)
>Background: I was VERY curious how our agenda for #opencomm would be received in our field (if you don't know what I'm talking about, here's the link:…).
>Basically, we're calling for making research more available, transparent, & traceable. We encourage the sharing of data (where ever possible) & analysis scripts, and the introduction of preregistration, registered reports, large scale collaborations, the TOP guidelines, etc.

At #ICA20 #ica_jsd @dragz @rasmus_kleis and me present a study that examines relationships between news literacy and using social media for news. We take DNR 2018 data and compare findings across 5 countries 🇩🇪🇸🇪🇫🇷🇺🇸🇬🇧
We define news literacy as knowledge about how the news is made (cc @sethdashley). We developed a measure that aims to compare this knowledge across countries - this is a very challenging thing to do. But (which is why?), comparative research on the topic is largely missing.
We find higher news literacy is
a) positively related to using social media as A source of news (next to maybe many others), but...
b) unrelated to using social media as MAIN source of news.
