Republishing Guidelines

How to Republish Content from the Blog

We believe that academic knowledge should be freely accessible to everyone, so we are happy to make our content free and available to republish under an Attribution-NonCommercialNoDerivatives Creative Commons license. This allows you to republish our posts and podcasts, as long as you credit the Frontiers of Socio-Legal Studies Blog. 

  • You can’t edit our material. If you do wish to make material edits, you will need to run them by the author for approval prior to publication. 
  • You have to credit authors and their institutions, ideally in the byline. 
  • You have to credit Frontiers of Socio-Legal Studies and include a link back to either our home page or the article URL. Our preference is a credit at the top of the article and that you include the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies logo if possible (downloadable below). 
  • You can’t sell our material separately, but you may put our articles on pages with ads. 
  • You have to confirm you’re licensed to republish images in our articles. Copyright terms are generally listed in the image caption and attribution. You are welcome to omit our images or substitute with your own. Charts and graphics follow the same rules. 
  • You can’t systematically republish all of our articles, nor frame the content of our site. 
  • Extracts: you can run the first few lines or paragraphs of the post and then say: “Read the full post on Frontiers in Socio-Legal Studies” with a link back to the article. 
  • Quotes: you can quote authors provided you include a link back to the article URL. 
  • Translations: require author approval, as translations are classed as “derivatives.” 
  • Print: articles can be published in print under these same rules, with the exception that you do not need to include the links. Please follow the crediting rules outlined above, listing the author in the byline and referencing the original publication on Frontiers of Socio-Legal Studies. 
  • Podcast and video: are also covered by creative commons and the same attribution requirements apply.
