Independence in Verify-Sy is the independence of values, practice, and goals, and it is the path in which our work proceeds, starting from the idea to publishing, in all our materials, projects, and programs, as well as in the editorial process and all the policies adopted by us. Independence means freedom from any censorship or politicization that may undermines and contradicts our vision and the original purpose of the verification process as well as, in some cases, makes the fight against disinformation self-contained. We believe that independence in our work is the urgency of the desired effectiveness, specifically in view of the state of our audience and our region, which is plagued by conflicts and various alignments.
Accuracy is the criterion that is not absent from our work, in all its stages, starting from the monitoring process, to the application of the methodology adopted in the Verify-Sy, as well as through the use of various verification tools in the search and investigation process, to accuracy in language and choice of terms, as well as building contexts. Accuracy in Verify-Sy is an integrated system, based on careful consideration of the subject matter of verification, with patience and perseverance in all aspects, and not neglecting any hypothesis, and the system on this basis helps to avoid verification slipping into the pits of omission and error, or causing confusion, assumptions, conclusions and interpretations.
Clarity, as well as accuracy, are working together to set strict controls for two main issues, the first is the perfection of research so that we do not fall into the trap of deficiency and selectivity, and the second is related to the use of clear, simple and precise language, in order to ensure the optimal application of the methodology, which we are keen to present its stages and every steps taken as if the audience is a partner with us, interrogates with us as well the reference and sources, and all of this enhances the great purpose of verification, facts presented for the sake of truth, including also shutting off any doubt or misinterpretation, and completely avoiding any weighting, judgments or charging, value or emotional.
The work team’s ideas, affiliations and feelings are tested in the matter of standing at the same distance from the various parties, but the approach is in harmony with the momentum that this party or that, not our desire to do so, and we see balance despite its difficulty because it requires great struggle and elevation, a guarantee of building the credibility required in Verify-Sy to fulfill our mission.
Objectivity is the shield that protect the facts, and without it the standards of accuracy and balance are distorted, because objectivity draws for us the limits of the subject of verification required, and accordingly determines the tools and mechanisms of research, that is, full commitment to objectivity begins at the beginning of our work and accompany it to prevent the intrusion of any personal perceptions or opinions.
Integrity in Verify-Sy is broader than neutrality and more effective than it. Integrity with the criterion of balance, means being cautious to the facts discovered during the verification process, not adapting the doubted facts or verification but ensuring to present them clearly without fragmentation, mutilation or manipulation of contexts, and as integrity works with clarity to promote the construction of a language that does not have doubt, or provokes certain instincts that push one party to reject facts presented to it that do justice to another party, and here we seek in the Verify platform to delay the advance publication and give access to any party its right to seek and wait, to display all relevant positions.
Imperturbability has two meanings, poise, and sobriety, and if the first meaning is achieved, the second meaning is what we seek in sobriety, meaning that sobriety in the work of Verify-Sy is required at all stages, especially during communication with sources and parties closely related to the subject of verification, and sobriety is also an original endeavor in building the final article, so deep seriousness, complete work, complete research, and giving priority to what affects or affects the cognitive aspect or awareness, all of these are foundations that we do not accept to sacrifice, the facts deserve such majesty.
