Fact checking is checking the accuracy of names, dates, dollar figures, and other facts. It is not copy editing or substantive editing.

This seminar will discuss

  • Why fact checking is important: prevents mistakes, avoids loss of money, avoids lawsuits, establishes client/author credibility 
  • How to fact check: major classes of facts, steps in the fact-checking process, major classes of sources, corroboration
  • How much fact checking should be done: desired level of fact checking based on the client's parameters, time and budget constraints
