    Project mention: Show HN: FactCheck – search experts opinions on topics | | 2021-02-16

    Hey HN!

    Like many of us I'm concerned about misinformation spreading on the internet and have often been searching for opinion pieces mentioning top academics. FactCheck automates this process by showing you Google search results mentioning experts in your field of choice (experts are retrieved using the Microsoft Academic API).

    The code can be found here and it's free to use/extend :)
