Thanks for Your Interest

We’re glad you’re interested in republishing Undark’s journalism. Our “Republish This” link, found at the top of most of our articles, makes grabbing the basic text — and complying with our guidelines — almost effortless. Unless otherwise noted, and within the time window indicated below, you are welcome to use Undark’s original material for free.

Here’s what we require:

Use Within 90 Days

• Ninety (90) days following first publication at Undark, full ownership of most of our original published material reverts back to the contributors whose bylines and/or credits you see accompanying each article, photograph, or other work. If the publication date on an article you’d like to use is more than 90 days old, Undark requests that you get in touch with the named contributor to negotiate further usage. If you have questions, send us an email at

Include Our Page View Counter

• If you are republishing online, we ask that you include our page view counter — a single pixel and short snippet of HTML that lets us know how much traffic our story has received. If you use our “Republish This” link, the code will be included automatically at the bottom of the article. It takes up no space, and will be enclosed in a standard tag.

Do Not Edit

• You can write your own headlines and subheads, of course, but you cannot otherwise edit our material, except to reflect relative changes in time or location, or to make minor adjustments for editorial style. Substantial edits, including cuts or additions, are not permitted. Please send an email to for questions on this front.

Credit Us

• Unless otherwise discussed with Undark’s editors, you must clearly and directly credit Undark as the publisher of origin for the material. For online publishing, we require that you provide a link back to either our home page or the original article. In print, please include mention of our URL,
• Similarly, the name of the author or creator of the material must be displayed at or near the top of the article.
• If your CMS or site style permits it, including our logo, available here, is always appreciated, too.

Be Careful With Images

• Many images used by Undark are purchased from commercial agencies, which don’t allow their images to be republished without permission and/or payment. You are responsible for obtaining permission for any images not produced by Undark.

Don’t Abuse the System

• You are not permitted to sell our material.
• You are not permitted to redistribute our articles to other publishers for free.
• You are not permitted to lift our articles from, or credit our articles to, other sites where you may find them. Undark must always be credited clearly and prominently as the publisher of origin.
• You are not permitted to republish all of our articles; you need to select stories to be republished individually.
• If you republish our material, your site must include a prominent and effective way to contact you.
• Undark reserves the right to revoke republication permission to any publisher at any time and for any reason.
