Editorial Policy

As editors of HealthWeb Navigator, our primary goal is to provide users with free, unbiased guidance about health-related information on the web.

Our diverse team of editors assess the readability, credibility, quality, relevance, and usefulness of each website listed for review. We hope visitors will use this information to choose the most helpful websites related to virtually any health topic.

Review Creation & Update

New reviews are produced and updated daily. Each website is re-reviewed annually to account for any design or content changes over time. Further, we add a date of last review to every review so that visitors can verify each review’s currency.

Reviewer Qualifications

We require all health content reviewers to have attained a level of medical training/experience at the level of nurse practitioner and above. Further, the medical experience must be considered satisfactory within the framework of science-based medicine.

Our usability reviewers are general web users following guidelines that are consistent with standard usability best practices.
