The Verification Handbook is a groundbreaking new resource for journalists and aid responders, which provides step-by-step guidelines for using user-generated content (UGC) during emergencies.In a crisis situation, social networks are overloaded with situational updates, calls for relief, reports of new developments, and rescue information. Reporting the right information is often critical in shaping responses from the public and relief workers; it can literally be a matter of life or death.The Verification Handbook draws on the experiences of practitioners from some of the world’s top news organisations, including the BBC, Storyful, ABC, and Digital First Media, to equip journalists with the skills to accurately serve the public with these necessary updates. The handbook will be freely available online to anyone interested in brushing up on their verification skills beginning Tuesday the 28th of January 2014. A print version will also be available to order soon thereafter.This EJC initiative is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, as well as by the African Media Initiative (AMI). The project is endorsed by numerous international organisations including UNHCR, UNAOC, and UNDP.
