Resumen

Gran cantidad de estudios empíricos sobre fake news emplean como datasets repertorios de noticias falsas y de noticias auténticas, al objeto de compararlos. Dichos estudios apelan a menudo a la confiabilidad (como factor para caracterizar y evaluar el mensaje, el medio, la fuente y la percepción de la audiencia. A partir de los 50 artículos de metodología empírica más citados en WoS y Scopus (2017-2022) sobre fake news y confiabilidad proponemos una metainvestigación donde analizamos los criterios, índices, métricas y bases de datos que declaran los investigadores para justificar su selección tanto de noticias auténticas como falsas.
