Republishing Guidelines

Please freely share everything as much as possible!

We believe in the power of people sharing information about things they care about. So unless otherwise noted, you can republish our articles online or in print for free. You just have to credit us, and link to us, and you can’t edit our material or sell it separately.

Republishing guidelines, for print and online

  1. Unless you have express permission from the author, you can’t edit our material, except to reflect relative changes in time, location and editorial style. If you need to materially edit our content please contact us.
  2. You have to credit our authors and sources — ideally in the byline. We prefer “Author Name, Source”.
  3. You have to credit SCM NATION— ideally at the top of the article and include our logo — with a link back to either our home page, SCM NATION or (preferably) the specific article URL on The Conversation website.
  4. If space is tight, you can run the first few lines of the blog/article and then say: “Read the full blog/article on SCM NATION” with a link back to the article page on our site.
  5. If you’re republishing any of our blogs online, you must use our page view counter, link to us, and include links from our story. Our page view counter is a small pixel-ping image (invisible to the eye) that allows us to know when our content is republished, and gives our authors sense of the size of audience and which publications they’re reaching. It is a condition of our guidelines that you include our counter. If you use the “republish” button that accompanies each article then you’ll capture our page counter.
  6. It’s OK to put our articles on pages with ads, but you can’t sell our material separately.
  7. You have to confirm that you’re licensed to republish images in our articles. Some sources don’t allow their images to be republished without permission.
  8. You can republish individual articles, but you can’t systematically republish all of our articles. If that’s your aim, please contact us.
  9. Our articles are licensed under Creative Commons — Attribution/No derivatives, which explain the legal details. If you have questions, please contact us.
