The Ferret was the first publisher in Scotland to adopt the independent regulator Impress. 

This means all our published work should adhere to the Impress Standards Code. 

This code makes provides guidance on how issues should be reported, with specific clauses on key issues such as privacy, accuracy and plagiarism. 

You can find more information on the Impress Code here:

We also publish a style guide and ask all our authors to work to it.  You can find our style guide here: 

If you would like to suggest a change or something for inclusion in our style guide please don't hesitate to get in touch to let us know.
