HOW OUR JOURNALISTS WORK
The Daily Star is published by Express Newspapers, a subsidiary company of Reach PLC, which is a member of and is regulated by IPSO, the Independent Press Standards Organisation.
Our journalists work according to The Editors’ Code of Practice, which sets the benchmark for ethical standards in journalism and is enforced by IPSO.
We are also a proud partner of The Trust Project as we want to make it simpler for readers to discover more about who we are and our values.
Verification and fact checking
We expect our staff to use their best endeavours to verify the stories being put forward for publication.
Journalists have an obligation under IPSO’s Editors’ Code of Practice to protect their sources, but we also have a duty to establish that the sources we use are reliable and that material has been appropriately obtained. Story provenance is ultimately the responsibility of the Editor.
When using unnamed sources, the company relies on the integrity, experience and professionalism of its staff.
If you believe a story we have published is inaccurate, please contact the editorial team. You can:
- Email: [email protected]
- Phone: 020 8612 7373
- Write to Readers' Editor, Daily Star at Reach PLC, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5AP
Once verified, we will correct the story on the website as soon as possible. Where appropriate, the fact a correction has been made will be noted on the story and/or on the corrections and clarifications page.
If you have an issue about how the Daily Star or Daily Star Sunday has written about you personally or has treated you and wish to make a formal complaint over a potential breach of the Editors’ Code of Practice, find out who to contact.
You can also contact IPSO for advice.
