At Verywell Fit, we developed—and adhere to— our Core Values in order to achieve this mission to provide inclusive, evidence-based, and unbiased health and wellness information. 

Our editorial process centers on making sure you actually understand what you’re reading and know how to use the information to make confident, educated choices about your nutrition and fitness goals.

Dotdash Meredith Content Integrity Promise

We are committed to the quality and trustworthiness of our content and editorial processes. Our team of writers, editors, fact-checkers, illustrators, photographers, and medical and financial professionals rigorously researches and reviews all content on an ongoing basis to ensure it is up to date, accurate, and puts the needs of our readers first. 

Each article features a byline that includes the name, a brief description, and a link to more information about those who contributed to that piece. The date indicates when the piece was most recently updated with new information. Some articles also have a tagline at the end to provide additional information on research or authorship.

Original illustrations, graphics, images, and videos are created by internal teams, who collaborate with experts in their fields to produce assets that represent diverse voices, perspectives, and contexts. Periodic review by editors as well as by Medical, Financial, Anti-Bias or other Review Board members as appropriate, ensure the quality, accuracy, and integrity of these assets. Photos and videos are not edited in any way that may cause them to be false or misleading.

We correct any factual errors in a transparent manner and strive to make it easy for our readers to bring errors to our attention.

All of our writers, editors, and contributors are responsible for disclosing any potential conflicts of interest.

Our editorial content is not influenced by our advertisers. We maintain a strict separation between advertising and editorial content and clearly differentiate editorial content from advertising content.

Our Diversity Initiatives

As a health brand that reaches more than 38 million readers per month, Verywell has the power and responsibility to create positive change.

We are working with the Dotdash Meredith Anti-Bias Review Board to expand representation within our articles and to fix language and content that aren’t inclusive. There is much to be done, but we are committed to reflecting our readers in the voices and content we share.

Our Policies

Independence and Impartiality Policy

Verywell Fit is committed to independent, impartial, fair journalism. Our editorial content is not influenced by our advertisers. Every Dotdash Meredith staff member and contributor is held accountable to a high standard of honesty and transparency.

We maintain a strict separation between advertising and editorial content. Our “Sponsored Content” is labeled to make clear that such content is provided by or on behalf of an advertiser or sponsor.

In line with our mission to provide useful information that helps people find answers, solve problems, and get inspired, we are dedicated to publishing unbiased, comprehensive reviews of products and services. Our product and service reviews are wholly independent and based on robust research and product testing. When readers visit “affiliate links” within our content, Dotdash Meredith may receive commissions from purchases, but we never receive any compensation or consideration for the content of our recommendations.

Dotdash Meredith writers and editors are prohibited from giving preferential treatment to any outside resource (company, publication, video, affiliate, website) based on their relationship with the person or company who authors or owns that resource.

All of our writers and editors are responsible for disclosing any potential conflicts of interest—any relationship, financial, or personal, with any source or resource that may compromise their ability to provide fair and impartial information.

As with many publishers, our writers and editors are sometimes provided with complementary products or services for review purposes. We are transparent and disclose when any valuable products or services are provided to our editorial teams. Our editorial staff and editorial contributors must not solicit gifts or services for personal purposes.

Originality Policy

Our goal at Verywell Fit is to provide original, useful, and unbiased content. All information must be verified, properly attributed, and may not infringe the copyright or anyone’s intellectual property rights. Any suggestion of plagiarism is investigated fully and is grounds for dismissal.

We expect all contributors on the network to abide by all applicable laws, standards, and accepted journalistic practices including:

Accuracy and Corrections Policy

The accuracy of our verified information and news articles is core to Verywell Fit.  So too is our commitment to accountability to our readers and transparency about our accuracy and corrections practices.

Our rich library of “evergreen” educational service content is routinely updated, reviewed by our professional review boards, and fact-checked to ensure ongoing publication of accurate, complete, relevant, and up-to-date useful information. Following our rigorous and systematic updating and verification process, articles in our content library are date-stamped to indicate to readers that the information is complete and accurate. News articles often cover a distinct event in time and are not part of our routine update process.

At Dotdash Meredith, we are committed to telling readers when an error has appeared, and to correcting it. When we discover a significant error of fact, we will correct the article as quickly as possible and append a correction note. All corrections will be clearly labeled, dated, and include information about what was corrected.

We welcome our readers’ participation in our ongoing commitment to accuracy and fact-checking. If you believe we have published a factual error in any of our content, please let us know and we will investigate and take appropriate corrective and/or updating measures. You can report a possible error by emailing us at corrections@dotdash.com.
