PDF download (published July 2023)

A client may ask an editorial professional to fact-check their text as a separate job from copyediting and proofreading. A less detailed fact-check may also be part of a copy edit. This fact sheet outlines what a fact-check might involve, and provides practical tips for how to go about it. It also covers common concerns about rates and liability.
