Fact-checking, Ethics and Corrections Policy

Fact-checking: Our reporters must be precise with their words, headlines, and URLs. They must understand that words have power and act responsibly. In doing so, reporters must verify the information they gather. This includes identifying information such as names and positions, but also includes factual statements and accounts. Reporters conduct their own fact checking using their own judgment guided by the ethics policy. Rijeka Danas will use fact checkers in certain circumstances it deems warranted.

Ethics Policy: Our code of ethics is based on five areas which include integrity, objectivity, professional competence, confidentiality, and professional behavior.

Corrections Policy: Mistakes happen. How we deal with errors in our reporting is important to maintaining
our integrity and the trust of readers and sources. When the Rijeka Danas publishes an
error, we will acknowledge it and take appropriate steps to correct it as quickly as
possible, both online and in print and, if necessary, on social media and other
off-platform applications.
