REPUBLISH AN ARTICLE IN (1) A PRINT PUBLICATION AND ELECTRONIC FORMAT OR
(2) ELECTRONIC ONLY, ARCHIVED ON YOUR WEBSITE AND/OR SENT VIA EMAIL

For print (hard-copy) newsletters, the same information in the section above. Read on regarding electronic publications (Email and/or archived documents on your website). If your newsletter/publication is Emailed to your subscribers: I don’t allow my articles to be republished “as a whole” within Emailed newsletters because of rampant plagiarism. (This is why in my own E-newsletters, I only include a paragraph or two of an article within an E-newsletter and on my archived newsletter page (in HTML).

To use one of my articles within an Emailed newsletter (E-Newsletter), you can:

  • write a short blurb about the article (or include the first few lines) and then post a link back to the article on my website or on your website (you can upload the PDF version of the article to your site, using the article “as is,” making no changes). This is the method I use in my own E-Newsletters.
  • attach the PDF of the article you want to use as an attachment to your E-Newsletter

If your newsletter/other publication is archived on your website (and not Emailed to your subscribers) you can include the complete article IF your publication is saved and archived on your site as a PDF with security enabled, to prevent others from swiping the contents and re-using without your authorization or mine. (Scroll to the bottom of the page to learn more about enabling security on a PDF.) Click here for the permission form for using one of my articles in your publication that is print/electronic OR electronic only, including attaching the PDF of an article to your E-Newsletter.
