Impartiality of the editorial team
Verify-Sy platform does not forbid its employees and those working with it to adopt any ideas, beliefs or positions, but in return, the platform adopted strict conditions according to which the worker on the platform separates his personal positions and the essential requirements set by the platform, ensuring the achievement of the approved vision and mission, under the umbrella of standards according to the platform’s conception of it.
The editorial team’s bias is not a theoretical issue that accepts discussion or leniency, because in our perception, if it occurs, it will kill the credibility of the platform, and harms the popularity of the platform among different segments of the public, or parties, especially in conflict areas. Bias, from our point of view, if it occurs, refers the fight against misinformation to another directed misleading, and this part is at the heart of the duties of the editor-in-chief, who is responsible for establishing something like a logical trial of the content of the article, and holding the editor accountable to ensure strict application of the standards.
