If you would like to link to Education World or reprint one of Education World's original articles, please follow the guidelines below.
EARLY CHILDHOOD THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL
STUDENTS, EDUCATORS, AND SCHOOLS,
As with any resource, you must use a proper citation when citing Education World content; in our case, that credit must indicate that Education World is the source and provide the complete URL of the item you're referencing. Two sample citation formats can be found at the bottom of this page.
You may provide a direct link to original Education World material on the EducationWorld.com Web site without requesting prior permission.
If you would like to use a description of Education World in any directory or list of annotated links to strong education resources, please consider this one:
Education World [www.educationworld.com] offers teachers, parents, students, administrators, and school technologists a place where they can start each weekday of the school year with a wealth of new, practical content. Education World now incorporates SchoolNotes [www.schoolnotes.com], the leading school-to-home communications platform.
Limited Reprint Rights
Most Education World content is aimed at classroom teachers, and often there is a printable worksheet of some kind for students. Classroom teachers are certainly invited to print out as many copies of such materials as they need for classroom use without asking prior permission.
Classroom teachers, PreK-12 administrators, educational technologists, and non-profits serving education professionals may reprint Education World articles on paper for limited distribution in the context, for example, of a staff development day. This limited distribution includes teacher in-service trainings. Please ensure that Education World is cited within training materials. Such one-time paper reprints of a limited number of Education World articles are permitted as long as proper citation and the original URL is included on the paper reprints. Any paper reprints of a different nature or purpose, or a larger scale, require express permission from editor[at]educationworld.com.
No electronic reprint rights to whole articles--unless used in the classroom only--are ever granted without express permission. In electronic or paper newsletters, PreK-12 school administrators, teachers, etc., may pick up a "blurb" for an article from our site. A link to (or the printed URL of) the complete Education World article must appear in the newsletter with the blurb. This "blurb + link" arrangement is permitted on a repeated basis without prior permission.
FOR-PROFIT, HIGHER EDUCATION, OTHER
Anyone may hyperlink to Education World pages. As with PreK-12 users above, that link should include a headline or short paragraph that can serve as a "blurb" to accompany the link to Education World.
However, any attempt to place whole content items from Education World online or in any electronic form without permission does constitute a violation of copyright.
Instructors in higher education may follow the limited reprint rights outlined above for PreK-12 teacher-training and professional-development uses. However, no instructor may base a substantial amount of any course material, especially online, upon such use of Education World material. Nor in any case can the instructor lift entire content items and place them in electronic form in their course material.
GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR
REQUESTING EDUCATION WORLD MATERIAL
Aside from the limited reprint rights granted above, any reprint or other use of Education World copyright material is to be requested expressly of firstname.lastname@example.org. Any such request must cite the exact Education World URL and a full description of the usage being requested. Only those URLs and those exact usages will be sanctioned by any affirmative response.
No grant to underlying copyright is to be inferred from any reprint or syndication rights granted.
