The Press and Journal is committed to journalism of the highest standards and we aim to produce our newspaper with accuracy, honesty and fairness.

Our journalists adhere to the DC Thomson company values of integrity and respect – and we abide by the industry’s own code of practice, known as the Editors’ Code, which is the foundation stone of the UK press self-regulatory system. It sets out the rules that newspaper and magazine industry members pledge to accept.

More on the code and its rules can be found here.

All complaints should be addressed to the Editor. It is our policy to publish clarifications and corrections when necessary and as quickly as possible. We will set aside space on page two to do so, or, if the complainant requests, in the relevant section of the newspaper.

If you wish to make a complaint you can contact us by e-mail at, by writing to The Editor, the Press and Journal, Lang Stracht, Mastrick, Aberdeen AB15 6DF or by calling us on 01224 690222.

If you are still not happy you can contact The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) which is the independent regulator of the newspaper and magazine industry and administers the Editors’ Code of Practice. 

IPSO can be contacted at: Gate House, 1 Farringdon Street, London  EC4M 7LG, by e-mailing, logging on to or by calling 0300 123 2220.
