Steal our stories (well, credit us when you republish)

To uphold a longstanding regional tradition of being hospitable and sharing what we’ve made, 100 Days in Appalachia is inviting other media outlets to republish our stories. Since we are the child of three non-profit organizations, we feel compelled to give back however we can.

Our goal is to make our journalism — and Appalachia as a whole — more open source. Admittedly, we also want to reach as many people as possible with the stories we’ve been telling.

With that in mind, we had our resident web guru / hacker Tyler Channell build a widget that allows anyone to copy and paste the stories on our site with just a few clicks.

If you’re interested in republishing our content, please make note of the following:

  • You can’t edit our material, except to reflect relative changes in time, location and editorial style. (For example, ‘yesterday’ can be changed to ‘last week,’ and ‘Morgantown, W.Va.’ to ‘Morgantown, West Virginia’, ‘Morgantown’ or ‘here’.)
  • If you’re republishing online, you have to link to us and to include all of the links from our story as well as our tracking.js tag at the bottom of the story.
  • You can’t sell our material or republish our material wholesale, or automatically; you need to select stories to be republished individually.
  • Photos from our staff and publishing partners are available to be republished. However, photos on this site licensed from third parties (such as the Associated Press, Getty iStockPhoto, etc.) may require your own license.
  • Content we’ve published from anyone outside of the 100 Days in Appalachia partnership isn’t necessary up for grabs. If there’s no ‘Republish this Story’ button on the post, you’ll need to contact the editors of those outlets.
  • You have to credit us – ideally in the byline. We prefer: ‘[Author Name], 100 Days in Appalachia.
