In a deteriorating international climate, influence operations span countless targets, platforms, and jurisdictions, which can complicate data collection and research. Often collated with adjacent issues like cybersecurity, hybrid operations, and information interference, influence operations offer multiple entry points, angles, and levels of analysis. As an influence operations researcher, clearly defining and recording your methodology will provide you with a solid basis for your investigation. A sound methodology will not only allow you to see where the limits and gaps in your analysis might be but also brings transparency to your work, allowing other researchers to better understand and accept your conclusions.
