Research:

In all our content we must check and verify information, facts and documents, where required to achieve due accuracy. We should not automatically assume that the material is accurate and should take reasonable steps, depending on how it is to be used and if necessary to achieve due accuracy, to seek verification.  We should normally acknowledge serious factual errors and correct such mistakes quickly, clearly and appropriately.
