CAJ report: Best Practices in Digital Accuracy and Corrections

The Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) has released a new set of guidelines for modifying and removing published digital content from websites and online archives. The report, titled Best Practices in Digital Accuracy and Corrections, makes a number of recommendations for journalists making corrections to online content and covers issues such as timeliness and transparency.

The best practices were developed the CAJ ethics advisory committee, a panel comprised of Toronto Star public editor Kathy English (chair), media lawyer Bert Bruser, journalism professors Tim Currie, Shauna Snow-Caparelli and journalists Rod Link, Craig Silverman and Scott White.

The new guidelines build upon the 2010 report released by CAJ titled Unpublishing Digital Content.
