How Can the ARTT Catalog Help Me?

If you are researching or practicing in a field where trust-building responses might improve the efficacy of your work, the ARTT Catalog can help guide you towards the latest research from different disciplines

For example, Catalog ‘tags’ are intended allow you to easily search and filter the content for your specific needs. In addition, the tag section is a useful feature that can give you a quick overview of each paper or resource included in the Catalog.

The tag section also provides information for each resource included in the Catalog, detailing:

  • Methods used
  • Outcomes tested
  • Theories guiding the intervention
  • Conditions around the study 

The following sample ‘tag’ section includes explanations about what each tag means:

This sample tag section explains how to interpret each tag.

Examples of ARTT Catalog Use Cases

While the ARTT Catalog is not intended to provide direct guidance about how to engage in conversations, it still provides researchers and practitioners with the ability to explore how interventions may overlap, interact or counteract each other.

Here are several example uses:

1. Share the ARTT Catalog as a standalone resource 

Imagine you have a new research assistant who needs to familiarize themselves with the latest research on trust-building responses. You want them to have a broad understanding of the field as well as the widely used terminology. 

The ARTT Catalog can act as a standalone resource that can easily be shared with anyone looking to gain insights into a wide-range of response modes. Catalog users can choose papers by response mode, theory, method, as well as by type of content (e.g., toolkits, peer-reviewed papers, etc.)

If it is particularly useful to understand practical tips for applying these response interventions in practice, you can search through the catalog by Type: *Toolkit which will pull the more practitioner-focused handbooks and toolkits from our curated library.

2. Develop practitioner training materials

Imagine you are developing training materials to increase a reader’s critical examination of media content. You might want to learn more about methods that are backed by research in different disciplines. Perhaps you also want to know how successful interventions have been.

One way to use the ARTT Catalog would be to filter articles and papers using the ARTT: Encourage healthy skepticism tag in the Zotero library to pull relevant results. You can then scan through features of each paper in the ARTT Catalog at a glance through the ‘tags’ section.

Once you have narrowed down your search, the tag section is a useful feature that can give you a quick overview of each paper. A closer look at the tag section can show you information about the methods used, the outcomes tested, and the theories guiding the intervention.

Tags can also provide information about the conditions around the study, such as how many people participated in the study, or where the study took place, and on what social media platform, how long the study was conducted, and so on.

For example, using the ARTT: Encourage healthy skepticism tag as our main search parameter will bring us to the study, “Pausing to consider why a headline is true or false can help reduce the sharing of false news,” by L.K. Fazio. By looking at the notes and the tag section presented by the Catalog, we can get a quick overview of Fazio’s study, and how it relates to the ARTT tags.

If you want to narrow in on a specific theory, method or outcome, you can also search and filter through the Catalog by subtag. For example, you can search for the Theory: Media Literacy tag or the Method: Lateral Reading tag.

By using these search parameters, you can explore research from a broader range of sources in order to develop or enhance training materials. 

3. Understand how different theories are tested in diverse disciplines

Imagine you are a postdoc interested in learning more about inoculation theory as it relates to a variety of disciplines both in the field and in research settings. Perhaps you are also interested to see results from a variety of settings. 

One way to use the ARTT Catalog would be to search and filter using the Theory: Inoculation tag, as follows:

You can also narrow down your search by using the Type tag to filter for toolkits or research studies. You can also look through the Sample tags to identify different research settings to explore the outcomes of these tests in different environments.

For example, a search using the Theory: Inoculation tag brings us to “Timing matters when correcting fake news,” by Brashier et al. A closer look at the Notes and Tag section provides us a quick look at the features of the “Timing matters” study:

This search can be performed with a number of different parameters in order to compare research being done in different settings.
