Fact-checking is an often overlooked function in publishing. Every piece of information advanced in a piece of writing needs to be checked and, often, double-checked to make sure the facts can stand scrutiny.

It is also important to keep the publication out of legal trouble. The person fit for this job loves to research, is a kind of detective, and is trained to look for things in a piece of writing to yank and check it. It could be names, it could be addresses, it could be a piece of dialog or an historical fact.

There are times when copy editors perform this function but on most large publications it is a job itself. Tip: Have passion for researching facts!
