Republish our content
Here at Lifespan.io we believe it is so important to share scientific knowledge about aging and longevity so that everyone can learn together. We have created this FAQ page to explain how other media outlets can benefit from using our content freely to enrich their spectrum of health-related topics.
REPUBLISHING NEWS ARTICLES
What articles can I republish?
We encourage other news outlets and publications to reuse our non-exclusive articles for free. We share all our news stories produced by LEAF (Life Extension Advocacy Foundation) staff under a creative commons license.
But is it really free?
It is totally free, yes.
What Creative Commons license do you use?
We publish our non-exclusive articles under the Attribution-NonCommercial-NonDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) license.
What do you ask in return?
We ask very little. Only that you give attribution in the following way:
- A link to the original story.
- Preserve all story hyperlinks.
- Include a byline with the reporter’s name and Life Extension Advocacy Foundation’s attribution. The preferred way to attribute is “Lifespan.io is a nonprofit advocacy organization and news outlet covering aging and rejuvenation research”.
Can I alter or edit stories?
We fact check the information for each article and ask that you do not edit the content in any way, including shortening articles or changing the wording.
How do I know if a story cannot be republished?
Content is under creative commons (CC) use unless labeled “All Rights Reserved”. If the article is labeled “All Rights Reserved”, LEAF cannot grant permission to republish such content. This restriction will be shown at the top of an article by the author and social media icons.
What if I want to embed a widget posting all your fresh articles on my website?
Yes, you are welcome to do this but please include our name and a link to our site under the widget. If you need help with this, please contact us.
Can your articles appear on pages with adverts?
Yes, there is no problem with that.
Can your material be used to create adverts?
No, it cannot be used for this purpose.
Can your material be used in academic books or conference presentations?
This form of collaboration will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us regarding this.
Can I use your photos and illustrations?
The images we use for our news articles are mostly stock images from shutterstock so we cannot give permission to use them. Sometimes we use our own footage (from the aging research events) that we may share at request. Feel free to ask us about the picture in question.
REPUBLISHING VIDEOS, PODCASTS, DATA VISUALIZATIONS OR GRAPHICS
Can I share your videos?
Yes but videos must not be directly uploaded to other social media channels/websites or modified in any way. All videos produced by LEAF that are posted on our YouTube channel can be shared or embedded. The same applies to our Lifextenshow and Science to Save the World channels.
Can I share your podcasts?
Yes, but they must be shared or embedded from the original source not directly uploaded to other social media channels/websites or modified in any way.. They are available via a number of popular platforms, including iTunes, Stitcher, Blubrry, Player.fm, and our Youtube channel.
Can I use your data visualizations or graphics?
Yes, but we ask you to include the date the screenshot was taken, credit the source, and link to the original page the image is on.
HOW TO OBTAIN OUR CONTENT AND ASSETS
How do I get a copy of an article?
You can take the text directly from the website.
Can I use your logo on republished articles?
Yes of course. You can download a high-resolution logo from our press page here.
Do we have to let you know when content is republished?
It isn’t mandatory, but we would really appreciate it if you did. Please contact us to let us know.
What if I have other questions?
We would be happy to answer your questions. If it helps the public learn more about aging research, we are definitely open to collaboration. Please contact us.
