Republishing Rules

The Habitat III Journalism Project aims to facilitate sharing of Habitat III-related content among publishers. The goal is to maximize the reach and potential impact of our work through cross-publishing and cross-promotion. 

Participating publishers must agree to the following rules:

  • Photos, graphics or artwork accompanying written stories are not to be republished unless otherwise agreed. 

  • Publishers who use content from the network agree to provide audience metrics to the original publisher if requested.

This arrangement will last until the end of Habitat III, although it could continue afterward if members of the Project want it to.

Questions? Ask Citiscope Managing Editor Christopher Swope at cswope [at] citiscope.org or Citiscope News Editor Carey L. Biron at cbiron [at] citiscope. org.
