Editorial Policy

The primary aim of this website is to provide useful and informative content that not only resonates with our readers but also inspires and motivates them. Our commitment to the core values of integrity and passion will never change, and in our quest to deliver accurate, up to date and unbiased information across multiple mediums, we’re guided by this set of principles and policies outlined below.

Ethics Policy

As the Society of Professional Journalists’ ethics code suggests, it is our policy to ensure the free flow of information that is accurate, fair, and thorough and we strive to do so in the clearest, precise, and transparent manner possible without fear or favor.

We are able to accomplish this by ensuring we have a diverse team of respected, experienced writers and researchers as well as editors that fact-check each article before it is published. We also provide sources and references for quotes and statistics. Our content is checked and updated from time to time to ensure that our information is always accurate.

One of our key strategies is to collaborate and work together with industry experts, coaches, and advisors in lifestyle, business, and relationships, our advisors and experts are able to inspect our content and ensure it is of high quality, factual, trustworthy, and useful.

The integrity of Skinnyscoop.com staff

Our journalists do not accept gifts, including but not limited to travel and lodging accommodations, from the subjects of their reporting. As such, all content found on our site is created by staff members of Skinnyscoop.com. We accept no advertising or content from outside sources on the website

Content Creation Process and Verification Standards

Our content goes through multiple levels of editing to ensure that the information presented is accurate, factual, and unbiased.

At a minimum, the typical process for any of our writing is as follows:
  1. Researcher and reviewer comes up with the topic and creates an outline to fully address the question or topic at hand
  2. Journalist or Web content developer writes the article and sends it for review and editing
  3. Article is copyedited by a content editor
  4. Article is edited by an editor
  5. Article is reviewed by reviewer
  6. Corrections and clarifications are incorporated at all levels
  7. Article is published on the website

We provide original content with the exception of the quotes, some photos, and other citations. We only make use of references from reputable sources, such as academic databases, research publications, scientific journals and magazines, trusted news agencies and organizations, and books written by respected and well-known authors, as well as interviews or communication with well-established professionals and industry experts.

Fact-Checking and Corrections 

We seek to corroborate information with multiple sources, question assumptions, and investigate claims with skepticism. If a piece of information is not accurate, we will change it as quickly as possible and we’re always transparent with our readers about the scale of the error

We require our journalists to start by asking the following “who,” “what,” “where,” when,” “why” and “how” questions when cross-checking information in a quest for the truth and accuracy

· How do you know?
· Who is the source, and how does the source know?
· How can you be sure?
. How reliable or credible, reputable or trustworthy is the source?
· Where is the evidence?
· What documentation supports the facts?

Here at Skinnyscoop.com, we see our content as a living document that must be updated as events unfold. We make every effort for content to be completely accurate upon publication. However, if a correction is required, we are transparent and will update the article if the new information adds to or corrects an aspect of the original story. We will make corrections to a factual error and will also make corrections where necessary if a typo in the publication could cause our users to misunderstand the story.

If you believe you’ve found anything incorrect on our website, please contact us.

We welcome feedback from our readers and have made it easy for our readers to provide it.
