Fact Checking Policy

Because we value the power of words so highly, we take great care to use them clearly and precisely in everything from headlines to URLs. Articles published by The Indian People authors are subject to constant fact-checking. Information that can be used to track down the author or source of the article. The writers verify the accuracy of their work using their own discretion and resources while keeping our Ethics Policy in mind. When necessary, the editorial staff at The Indian People is prepared to utilize internet fact-checkers as well as those on the staff. Our organization is dedicated to neutrality, openness to legitimate criticism and improvements, and full disclosure of its sources and funding. Before putting something online, we double-check it with everyone who could be affected by it.

When we get a claim about our fact-checking on the website, we first try to reach out to the person who made the claim to get further details and evidence. In addition to investigating relevant material (news items, scientific/medical journal articles, books, interview transcripts, statistics sources), we also make contact with persons and organizations who might have additional knowledge on or relevant expertise with the issue at hand.

To the greatest extent feasible, we rely on third-party, peer-reviewed, and unbiased data and information sources. We also warn that data and information from sources like political advocacy groups and partisan parties should be handled with caution.

Our editors will review all content produced by our authors, and depending on the nature and complexity of the issue, they may request further research or suggest edits. If an editor or many editors decide that a submission is not up to par, it will be given additional time for correction and review before it is published.
