Open data sets

In this section we publish all datasets that were developed during the R&D activities of the project. 

The data sets are available for use of any interested party.

This document presents the T1.1 Systematic Literature Review Dataset, which was collected for the VERITY project, on the topic of ‘trust in science’, based on a total of 83 articles which provide empirical results from various scientific disciplines (e.g., social and educational psychology, medicine, science education, science communication).
The methodology for the completion of the Systematic Literature Review was based on the PRISMA protocol, which provides an evidence-based minimum set of criteria for reporting in systematic reviews and meta-analyses.

This document constitutes a part of the D1.4 Social Network Analysis and includes the literature review that was conducted to investigate the methodologies used for addressing the topic of trust in science in Online Social Networks (OSNs). This review contains studies that have approached the topic of trust in science from different perspectives in OSNs examining both data from OSNs and suveys related to OSNs providing useful insights about the factors that influence public trust in science. Important findings are derived from the literature review that affect public’s trust in science, such as the political ideology, educational level, and cultural factors. Also, different methods of the studies are described such as the analysis of the text of the messages, the reactions of users, and deep learning techniques. The findings of the literature review are provided to the final document of D1.4 as they address the further analysis of the Task 1.4 Social Network Analysis

This supporting dataset of D3.3 Report on the Vignette study reflects the results of a vignette survey study carried out in four European countries (Austria, Cyprus, Greece and Spain) with 155 citizens. Our objective was to explore whether methods addressing societal mistrust in science that were identified in previous VERITY deliverable D3.2 (Focus groups with Stewards of Trust investigating and evaluating methods to guide trust in science) work differently for two citizen groups with varying levels of trust in science. Our main assumption was that four key methods identified in D3.2, namely science communication, co-creation, benefit sharing and social media, would work differently for Group 1, consisting of younger (18-30 old), more educated, urban citizens, and for Group 2, consisting of older (50+ old), less educated, rural citizens.
