Content funding on The Pharmacist Cooperative website and social network
The Pharmacist Cooperative produces a variety of content with funding from outside parties. These sources of revenue allow us to explore topics that we hope are of interest to The Pharmacist Cooperative readers. The presentation of the content makes clear how the content has been commissioned and produced, and who has funded it.
One of three labels will appear on this content: ‘Supported by’, ‘Paid content/Paid for by’, or ‘Advertiser content/from our advertisers’.
‘Supported by’ is used to describe editorially independent content. We accept funding from third parties both for new projects and for content we are already producing.
‘Supported by’ is also used to describe editorially independent content that The Pharmacist Cooperative has produced with funding from foundations that support specific projects.
Paid content/paid for by
‘Paid content/paid for by’ is used to describe advertisement features that are paid for and controlled by the advertiser rather than the publisher and are subject to regulation by the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK. This content is produced by commercial departments and does not involve The Pharmacist Cooperative staff.
‘Advertiser content’ or content ‘from our advertisers’
‘Advertiser content/content from our advertisers’ is used to describe advertisement features that are paid for and produced by the advertiser rather than the publisher. They are subject to regulation by the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK. This content is created by advertisers and hosted by The Pharmacist Cooperative and does not involve The Pharmacist Cooperative staff.
