Research Magazine Cover 9-1


August 2022 • Volume 9-1

How does a fact come to be? How is knowledge developed? When communication deteriorates into misinformation and disinformation, trouble is not far behind. This issue of UD Research takes a closer look at why effective communication matters more than ever and includes expert tips for developing a healthy information diet — how to gather good information and separate fact from fiction — during these challenging times.

Interactive elements throughout this issue help bring to life the transformative work our researchers have underway at UD and afar, from music to geology (even an erupting volcano). Take our interactive quiz to test your knowledge of plastic pollution and see how you can help stem a growing problem. Join us in celebrating UD ingenuity in our news and honors sections.
