About FIJ

FIJ(FactCheck Initiative Japan) is a non-profit organization for the promotion of Japanese fact-checking aimed at protecting society from mis/disinformation.

We support and cooperate with media partners that publish fact-checking articles based on the FIJ Fact-Checking Guidelines.



FIJ staff and volunteers monitor questionable information daily using the FCC system.

Media partners publish fact-checking articles based on their own investigations and information provided by FIJ.

The FCC system, which was developed by Smartnews,Inc. and Tohoku University Natural Language Processing Lab, automatically detects questionable information from Twitter.
