COP in News Verification

Certificate of Proficiency in News Content Verification - Methods, Tools & Techniques (COP)

This coursebook is developed as a Self-Study Training Guide and will serve to assist you in preparing for the News Content Verification - Methods, Tools & Techniques Certification of Subject Proficiency Exam.

Often for research work, the News or News Stories and online published News Articles are perceived to be of less information value compared to books or research papers and professional journals. Mainly because they are more reliable and considered peer-reviewed, vetted information source. Up to a certain degree, this is true; however, in comparison, the News has unique qualities that make them stand out. For instance, when we are to research events or incidents within a certain date the news and its archives can serve as a primary source of information about historical and current events. And, because newspapers also contain commentaries, opinions or retrospective articles about events, they can also serve as a secondary source of information.
