Beyond hosting/service/cloud costs, there would be some operating costs per factual claim en route to crowdsourcing or automation. These include claim merging, merging paraphrased or approximate factual claims together, collating factual claims and collating corroborating articles. Each journalist creates or produces their own phrasing of a claim; however, at some point after a news story appears, journalists could discover existing factual claims or clusters of such claims and select them.

That’s an excellent point about citizen journalists’ and bloggers’ factual claims in website-based and decentralized solutions.

I hope that the outline of topics, which you’re welcome to expand upon, is useful. The outline of topics is pertinent to website-based as well as decentralized solutions. As for whether DOI services and/or URI resembling https://facts.press.org/fact/ebfeb1f712ebc6f1c276e12ec21

are a part of a solution depends upon group reasoning and brainstorming.

I looked into this for science publishing some time ago, and found
that the DOI system requires fees, and as such is set up primarily for
large organizations, not individuals.

Would you agree with this? And so it's appropriate for journalists
working for larger organizations, but not for citizen journalists,
individual bloggers, and so forth?

Fees would vary from different providers, and for yearly volume of
But, for example, a minimum yearly for the smallest-scale publisher at
Crossref is $275, plus various other fees per document.

Here's the fee structure at Crossref:

I'm getting file not found on these.
