Editorial Policy

We are committed to producing professional coverage that upholds the highest possible standards of accuracy, integrity and quality.

News

We report stories as we see them, and strive to be fair, accurate and comprehensive in our reporting. Our editorial content may express a point of view on a story, but will always uphold our standards of honesty, transparency, impartiality and value to the reader.

When reporting on stories that reflect on individuals or organisations in a manner which they may disagree with, we will seek comment directly and offer right to reply. Stories will be updated with the most accurate and up-to-date information possible, or supplemented by a follow-up story as necessary. If you believe you have something to add to a story we have reported or feel you deserve the right to reply to a story, please contact the team.

We do not report on rumour, speculation or unsubstantiated claims without attempting to verify the information with credible sources. Any potential factual errors we are informed of will be verified and corrected as necessary, with a necessary disclaimer or notice of correction.

We will respect the request of any sources to remain anonymous, and protect the identity of any confidential sources. Any information provided confidentially will be verified with additional sources before publication. No sources will be paid for information.

We will always provide clear and prominent attribution when reporting on information from another publication, including a link to the original source. Approved imagery from photographers and other sources will be appropriately credited.

Advertising

Metaverse’s editorial and advertising are handled by separate teams. Metaverse’s website and video content will never be influenced or impacted by commercial considerations. Any sponsored content will be clearly labelled as such, and produced in a way that preserves the editorial integrity of the team and other Metaverse content.

We sometimes link to retailers such as Amazon using affiliate links, from which we may receive some money. When present in content, these links will be expressed using impartial language. Affiliate links have no influence on editorial content or coverage.

All content that appears on the Metaverse website and on the Metaverse YouTube channel is at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief and strives to uphold the standards set out above. If you feel that any of our content has failed to uphold these standards, please contact us.
