Fact-Checking Policy

At NIHER.org, our commitment to accuracy is fundamental to our service. We uphold the highest standards of journalistic integrity by implementing rigorous fact-checking procedures. This policy outlines our approach to ensuring the reliability and credibility of our content.

Commitment to Accuracy

Our journalists, editors, and contributors are mandated to verify the facts before any content is published on our platform. This includes news articles, opinion pieces, and all other forms of content. We strive to gather first-hand sources whenever possible and rely on reputable secondary sources when necessary.


We prioritize transparency regarding our sources. All information, data, and statistics are attributed to their original source or acknowledged when the source cannot be disclosed. We ensure that our sources are credible and reliable, and we are committed to using non-partisan and unbiased sources to gather information.

Verification Process

Our editorial team employs a multi-layered approach to fact-checking:

  • Preliminary Checks: Initial verification of facts is done by the author of the content using trusted sources.
  • Editorial Review: Before publication, each piece undergoes a thorough review by our editors who cross-check the facts against known reliable references.
  • Specialist Review: For topics requiring expert knowledge, such as technical innovations, medical advancements, or legal matters, we consult with subject matter experts to ensure factual accuracy.

Handling of Misinformation

In an era where misinformation can spread quickly, it is part of our mission to counteract false information by:

  • Actively monitoring for updates or changes in factual content and updating our articles as necessary.
  • Distinguishing clearly between statements of fact and opinion in our articles to avoid ambiguity.
  • Addressing viral misinformation impacting the sectors we cover through dedicated fact-check articles or updates within existing content.


Transparency in our journalistic practice includes acknowledging when an error has been made. Should inaccuracies be discovered post-publication, we commit to:

  • Promptly correcting factual errors, clarifying ambiguities, and updating outdated information as soon as they are identified.
  • Clearly marking and dating any edits made to published content to maintain the integrity and historical accuracy of our reporting.
  • Providing a straightforward means for our readers to report potential factual inaccuracies via info@niher.org.

Reader Involvement

We encourage our readers to participate in our fact-checking process. If you believe you have found an error in our reporting, please contact us at info@niher.org. We value reader feedback and consider it an essential component of our accountability and continuous improvement.

By adhering to this fact-checking policy, NIHER.org ensures that our content remains trustworthy and credible, maintaining the high standard our readers expect from us. We are committed to delivering news and information with unwavering accuracy and integrity.
