About the Event

In an age when so many writers rely on secondary or tertiary sources, unverified websites, and artificial intelligence to help create manuscripts, how can editors ensure that texts are accurate? Many editors—from copy editors to developmental editors—provide limited fact-checking services while editing. This typically takes the form of verifying names, dates, and places. But what about verifying facts related to history or current events? To data and statistics? To scientific or medical findings? This webinar will discuss why fact-checking is more important than ever, as well as share a broad overview of which editorial points should be verified and steps to ensure accuracy in a manuscript.
