Mapping disinformation about the environment in Latin America and the Caribbean: a bibliometric analysis of an incipient field of research

by Krystal Urbano, Thaiane Oliveira, Simone Evangelista and Luisa Massarani

In this article, we carry out a bibliometric analysis of studies carried out in Latin America and the Caribbean on environmental disinformation. Our corpus consisted of 51 articles, identified in the Scopus, Web of Science, Dimensions and Scielo databases. The results show continued growth in the production of scientific articles on misinformation and the environment after 2016, with climate change as a recurring theme. They also point to an increase in interest in the topic in the area of Communication & Information. It can also be seen that the field is in an early stage of development, however, it has an international and interdisciplinary character.

The results show that Brazil is the main stage of these analyses and appears in 65.5% of the corpus. It points to a concentration of research published from 2020, which correlate with the Covid-19 pandemic, being this the most studied theme (69.0%). The articles address digital social network studies (35.2%) and media studies (33.1%). We discuss the need to strengthen research among Latin American countries as a way to understand the specific nature of the circulation of science misinformation in the region and structure better ways to address it.

by Luisa Massarani and Thaiane de Oliveira

Disinformation is not a recent phenomenon, but it gained strength in the 2010s and expanded its dimension with the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in the fields of science and health. This context has contributed to an increase in studies related to disinformation in the context of science and health communication at a global level, but also in our region. This led us to open a call for this special issue on disinformation and communication of science and health in Latin America, which we present in this editorial.
