Advice for contributors - primary evidence

News articles for inclusion in the Glossop Gazette must adhere to IPSO's Editor's Code of Practise and also to Glossop Gazette's primary evidence policy. This requires that statements, actions or opinions attributed to a third party must be backed up with primary evidence. The primary evidence may be in the public domain (in which case the source should be cited) or else a copy of the primary evidence should be lodged with the Glossop Gazette as a safeguard against complaints or accusations of falsity. The primary evidence must have been collected in compliance with the relevant legislation. If anonymity is requested, the Glossop Gazette will not reveal sources of primary evidence under any circumstances. News articles that contain statements of fact not fully substantiated by primary evidence will not be included in the Glossop Gazette.
