Abstract: This presentation will introduce the COVID-19 Online Prevalence of Emotions in Institutions Database (COPE-ID) as a data resource for exploring the COVID-19 pandemic alongside the infodemic. The results from our misinformation study covering the presence of misinformation across five social media platforms, including the nature and discussion of prominent hashtags such as #Plandemic and #CovidHoax will be covered. Future directions of our work and the many ways in which the data source can be used for research will be discussed.
