More About Our Model

GPJ ACCURATE

The GPJ Accurate check mark is our commitment to you. For the last 15 years, that check mark has stood for the same thing: quality and accountability. At Global Press Journal we employ robust editorial processes that include an array of talented people, from local reporters to translators, fact checkers and copy editors. Every story is assigned a unique team of people who work together to ensure that stories are GPJ Accurate.

Local Reporting
Local journalists are the heart of Global Press. Each one begins reporting for Global Press Journal after graduating from Global Press Institute, the award-winning Global Press training program. After the training, each professional journalist is equipped to produce integrity-rich, consequence-driven journalism that features local voices, deep context and nuanced analysis. Our journalists report and write in their own languages and work with a global network of expert editors to ensure that their stories are 100% accurate upon publication.

Fact Checking
Global Press invests in human fact checkers for every story. Each story is fact checked by a professional news fact checker who is a member of the Global Press Accuracy Network. We use old-school fact checking techniques, prioritizing local sources with close proximity to the information.

Copy Editing
Our professional copy editors, also members of the Global Press Accuracy Network, review each story in English and the reporter’s local language for clarity, grammar, AP style and Global Press style. The Global Press Style Guide is a living document that establishes rules for referring to the people and places around the world where Global Press Journal reporters work. Each entry is specifically crafted to promote dignity and precision in international journalism. Our guide deviates from AP style, the industry standard, in every instance, to offer either more dignified and precise rules or guidelines not featured in the AP Stylebook.

Translation
Global Press Journal reporters report and write in their own languages. Stories are published in local languages as well as in English, thanks to our network of trained translators, who specialize in sociolinguistic translation techniques to ensure that sources’ words and ideas are captured completely and accurately.
