Abstract

Deepfakes are becoming a key topic in debates around politics and misinformation on the internet today. While the phenomenon of deepfakes is relatively new with the first documented public appearances recorded in 2017, there is already a growing scholarly literature about deepfakes and the various methods that can be used to help understand and combat them. This paper presents a preliminary systematic review of the academic literature on deepfakes. We assessed a representative sample (N=1049) of sources from four popular electronic databases, including Google Scholar, Scopus, Crossref, and Web of Science. We then coded those articles according to academic subject, theoretical approach, and theme.
