Guidelines for attributing work from TNI’s website

As a whole TNI’s articles are published under the above Creative Commons license, but there are some exceptions so please check the original article first to see the exact conditions for reproduction.

  • Please note that some articles are republished from other sources, so copyright guidelines should be based on the copyright terms of the original publication source (this is usually linked to at the top of relevant article/publication)
  • Where TNI-sourced articles are subject to different copyright terms, these are marked on the page in question.

Otherwise, you can follow these guidelines for reproduction of articles.

TNI suggests the following format for attribution:
This article by [author] was originally published on http://www.tni.org under a Creative Commons Licence [link to original article]

It would be appreciated if you could include the TNI logo above with the article. You can download it by right-clicking on the image and saving it.

Reproducing articles published elsewhere on TNI's website

TNI produces most of our own content, but occasionally reproduces materials that are written by TNI staff or fellows elsewhere or that cite them. We do this to publicise the work we are doing in many different arenas. TNI is committed to respecting the copyright conditions of material produced elsewhere that we reproduce on the website. If by mistake we fail to observe your conditions, please email webmaster@tni.org and we will fix the article as suggested.
