Republishing guidelines

We want to make it easier for you to share knowledge and creativity and encourage you to reuse our articles under the Creative Commons Attribution/No derivatives license.

You are free to republish an article so long as you do the following:

  • You have to credit the author: We prefer "Author Name, HigherEdMilitary" in the byline.
  • You can't edit our material: However, you may change time, location and editorial style. If you do wish to make material edits, you will need to run them by HigherEdMilitary for approval prior to publication. Please contact
  • You have to credit HigherEdMilitary: Include a link back to either our home page or the article URL. Include a credit at the top of the article and include our logo (available below).
  • You have to confirm you're licensed to republish images in our articles: Some images, such as those from commercial providers, don't allow their images to be republished without permission or payment. You are welcome to remove our images or substitute with your own. Charts and interactive graphics follow the same rules.
  • You can't sell our material separately: However, it's OK to put our articles on pages with advertisements.
  • You must use our tracking pixel when republishing online: The tracking pixel is a 1 pixel by 1 pixel invisible image that allows HigherEdMilitary to know when and where content is republished. If you use the "republish" button that accompanies each article you'll include our tracking pixel.
  • You can't republish our content in an effort to recreate our site or frame the site's content.

  • Edits: if you choose to make material edits, they will need to be approved prior to publication. Please contact

Tracking pixel troubleshooting

  • The tracking pixel is an invisible 1x1 image that allows us and our authors to know when and where our content is republished. If you use the Republish button, you will be capturing the tracking pixel.
  • If the tracking pixel creates giant white space in an article, add style="border:0; height:1px !important; width:1px !important;" into the tag to override the spacing.
  • The tracking pixel does not collect user data or personal information. We retain two pieces of data: 1) the referring URL, so we know what site republished the article, and 2) the browser user-agent version, so we can exclude traffic from bots. We also examine the IP address, which we use for city-level geo-coding and then discard.
  • The tracking pixel is distinct for every article, including a unique ID number for that article. If you're copying the code from another article or a saved template, be sure to update the ID number in the code. You cannot reuse the exact same code without updating it.
