Republishing our content

Our mission is to produce great journalism that serves the public and holds those in power accountable.  That’s why we want our great reporting to serve communities and be widely read. The Center for Public Integrity is open to other organizations republishing some of our content. Any story that has a “Republish this story” button, can be republished, as long as you abide by our Creative Commons license and the following terms:

  1. Cite the Center for Public Integrity as the original source. At the beginning of the story, include a byline credit and a line that reads, “This article was originally published by the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit investigative news organization based in Washington, D.C.” A hyperlink for “article” must link to the original URL of the story. The link for “Center for Public Integrity” must link to our homepage.

They are granted on a case-by-case basis.  Photos from other media organizations, such as Getty Images or the Associated Press, require separate permissions from those organizations directly. If you would like to republish photos or illustrations credited to Public Integrity, please contact media@publicintegrity.org to inquire about permission.
