Editorial Policy


    The purpose of this document is to outline the ethical and editorial standards maintained in ByteSpired and expected from our journalism. It contains the day to day conduct of our work and visualizes the set of policies that promote excellence. Our writers, editors, and video production teams must uphold the highest editorial standards in their pursuit to create high-quality, original, accurate content that our readers can trust. At ByteSpired, we strive to provide the highest quality content that is free of ethical bias and concerns.

    Editorial mission

    At ByteSpired, we aspire to provide accurate information in the field of tech, irrespective of anything. We do this through an honest and independent content creation strategy that serves an eager and engaged audience that demands truth and authenticity. We tell our readers what we know, how we know it, and why we believe our opinion matters. Our work is guided by our aspiration to help our readers understand their world. Our team is dedicated to informing, challenging, debunking, provoking, and untangling thoughts, but above all, telling the truth as we see fit. The editorial process is not influenced by advertisers in any case. We strive to maintain a strict separation between advertising and editorial content and differentiate between the two. We will write honestly, transparently, and in an unbiased manner. We treat our audience and those we write about as truthfully as we can, without promoting conflicts or misinformation.

    Reliable sources and fact checking

    The pursuit of truth requires us to be vigilant with everything that we write and say as part of this channel. Our writers are responsible for the accuracy of the content published under the name of ByteSpired, irrespective of the content format and the distribution platform. Everybody who becomes a part of the copy during the editing process shares this responsibility. Any information, before publishing, must be verified, using original sources, wherever possible. Deadlines, format, and fast TATs cannot be considered as an excuse for inaccuracy. In reality, we are always up against deadlines, and new information becomes available all the time, but errors in verifying facts, publishing partial truths, and missing context affects our credibility. Fact checking and error correction continues even after the piece is published on the website. Styling, wording, clarifications, and corrections should follow the latest styling guide as maintained internally.

    Originality and plagiarism

    Plagiarism is a blatant theft of someone else’s time and efforts. It is lazy writing and can be quickly caught through various means. If any ByteSpired writer uses information, including facts and quotations, we should provide due credit. When aggregating information reported elsewhere first, writers must use already established Fair Use conventions, summarize the sources used, and provide value by providing appropriate commentary or context. We will not tolerate plagiarism at any cost. Any such case, which hampers the credibility of the organization, is grounds for serious action. We expect all contributors to abide by all applicable laws and uphold the integrity of journalistic practices. Refer to the following documents for more information.

    Nor will we tolerate any known instance of false information. These include fabricated quotes, outdated information, wrongful credits, etc. Nothing published on the website - including articles, images, videos, or sound - should be fabricated, except clearly identified satire. If you use an edited photo, make sure that you provide photo illustration in the credits.

    Content quality parameters

    Inclusive and diverse content

    At ByteSpired, our audience is our priority. As a large publisher of tech content, we cannot be ignorant to injustice, hate, or discrimination plaguing the society in which our audience lives. We have to do our part in fighting systemic discrimination. As an authoritative voice in the tech industry, we can use our position to elevate the voices of those who struggle to be listened to. We are impartial when it comes to technological advancements, and we can highlight people doing things in the technology space that can decrease disparities. We pledge to make our site more inclusive and promote diversity.

    Engaging and accessible writing

    At ByteSpired, we encourage our authors to write in a clear, concise, and accessible manner. There is no space for unnecessary jargon that might confuse or divert the attention of our readers. As a writer, you are encouraged to explore diverse topics and engage your readers through compelling introductions, informative content, the latest information, and a thought-provoking conclusion.

    Ethical considerations

    Writers and editors at ByteSpired are encouraged to adhere to the ethical standards in all aspects of content creation. We respect the privacy of our users and are transparent about the data we collect and thoroughly abide by data protection laws under all circumstances. All content published under ByteSpired undergoes thorough scrutiny to ensure that it upholds moral and ethical standards. We do not, knowingly, publish any content that promotes hate speech, discrimination, or hurtful activities. Under no circumstances does ByteSpired promote or endorse illegal and unethical practices.

    Engaging multimedia

    At ByteSpired, we believe in deploying multiple forms of communication to convey our message. We encourage our writers and editors to use multimedia elements, including images, infographics, videos, or interactive elements, to enhance the content. Make sure that you only use relevant contextual multimedia. Any content you use should be properly credited and should comply with copyright regulations.

    Review and editing process

    To ensure the authenticity and consistency of the published content, we have established a review and editing process which starts with our writers themselves. Writers are accountable for any information that they include in their posts, and are therefore encouraged to cite sources wherever necessary. Our editors share the responsibility with our writers, and are accountable for ensuring that no false, fabricated, or outdated information makes it onto the site. They review the articles to filter out issues related to grammar, clarity, accuracy, and adherence to editorial guidelines. All information must be verified, using original sources wherever possible. The best practice is to update any new information, wherever necessary, throughout the lifecycle of the story. Any disputes, should they arise, should be discussed with the Editor in Chief to reach an acceptable resolution.

    Updates and archives

    We regularly add new content to the website and update old posts with new and relevant information. Old posts in our library may be archived to ensure that our audience always finds the latest information regarding anything they need.

    Continuous improvement

    Our editorial management, editor in chief, and legal counsel have helped drafting and editing this document. These policies do not and cannot outline every possible situation or outcome, especially in a fast moving and challenging industry as ours, nor do they provide fallible grounds for decisions that our writers and editors have to make by the hour. But, this document provides crucial guidelines for the occasions where we have difficult, sensitive, or uncommon decisions to make. Wherever these situations do arise, the first step in resolving them will be to discuss thoroughly with a supervisor, or when the situation calls for it, through other company policies designed to ensure objective reporting and a fair workplace. We believe that our writers and editors uphold the best journalism practices they can for their audience, and to that end they will exercise professional decision-making in their daily work and how they deal with their peers, readers, subjects, and sources. However, any lapse in judgment within the areas covered, or willful violation may be regarded as a sufficiently serious warrant for disciplinary action. We are constantly trying to improve our services and products, so we may need to change certain parts of this document from time to time. If we do, we will make sure to put a notice on the website and contact you directly, most likely through email.
