Corrections/Fact Checking Policy
Drug Discovery News’ (DDN) content is edited and directed by a team of PhD-trained science writers who work diligently to fact check and ensure that each story, infographic, podcast, video, and article is accurate. In the event of an error or misattribution, we will correct it as soon as possible and post a dated correction, clarification, or editor’s note near the bottom of the article. If a mistake occurs in a story that first appeared in the print magazine, we will also publish a correction notice in the table of contents of the next possible issue. If you detect an error in one of our articles, please email DDN’s content director, Kristie Nybo, at email@example.com. Corrections are made at the discretion of DDN’s editorial staff.
Comments posted to DDN’s Facebook page, Twitter account, YouTube account, Instagram account, and to the Infectious Disease Network Facebook page will be moderated by a member of the editorial team soon after they appear on those sites.
Comments will be removed from these sites immediately for these reasons:
a) are abusive
b) are libelous
c) contain ad hominem attacks
d) contain spam, including irrelevant links to commercial websites
e) are off-topic
g) promote hate of any kind
h) contain profanity
Readers or other interested parties may alert the staff to a potential problem with a particular comment, but the final decision to remove that comment will be made by DDN.
We reserve the right to edit, delete, move, or mark any comment as spam. We also retain the right to block access for anyone who comments inappropriately on our sites.
