You may adopt a series of measures to assure readers that the evidence you have gathered is accurate and your report is credible and based on sound fact-finding:

  • Avoid reporting findings as established facts unless they have been verified as such. If you include any piece of information that is not fully confirmed, this should be made clear.
  • Make a clear distinction between the evidence you have gathered and the analysis you make based on that evidence.
  • Explain in detail the methods you use for collecting information and be explicit about the limitations of the data you have gathered.
