We are committed to accurate, authentic journalism.
We are expanding the Global Press Accuracy Network (GPAN). The network supports our global team of reporters and editors in producing high-quality, accurate, ethical and locally-sourced news. The GPAN consists of copy editors, fact checkers, translators and multimedia experts.
We’re hiring accuracy professionals around the world!
Members of the GPAN are paid per piece and are typically given 24-48 hour deadlines. GPAN members specify the amount of work they are looking for, and work closely with Global Press’ assignment editor, lead editors and reporters during the editorial process. All GPAN work can be done remotely. GPAN members based in Washington D.C. or a Global Press bureau location are welcome (and encouraged!) to work with the local team.
