Our goal at Fix, Grist’s solutions lab, is to tell stories about climate solutions and a just future. That means we love when other outlets share our work. If you’re interested in republishing this story online or in print, we just have a few requirements:
For the byline, we prefer Author Name, Fix/Grist. At the top of the story, if on the web, please include this text and link: “This story was originally published by Fix, Grist’s solutions lab. To discover more climate solutions and visions of a greener future, subscribe to Fix’s biweekly newsletter.” Finally, we ask that if the story appears in one of Fix’s digital magazine issues, you retain the boilerplate language about the issue above the story.
Check the image requirements.
Photos sourced from Getty Images in our pieces can be republished as long as Grist is also credited. Outside of this, you can’t republish photographs or illustrations without written permission from Grist and/or the photographer.
Don’t change anything significant.
You can change the headline and/or subheading, but articles must be republished in their entirety. It’s OK to change references to time (“yesterday” to “today”) or location (“Iowa City, Iowa” to “here”). If you really think changing the story with additional localized copy would help, please contact us directly and we can discuss the change. We must approve the change before it goes live.
Don’t sell our stories.
We also ask that you don’t sell ads specifically meant to be placed in our stories. If you already have ads populating your site, that’s completely fine.
Use SEO best practices.
We require you to set the republished article webpage as noindex on your website. You can view Google’s guidelines on how to make a webpage noindex here.
Keep in touch.
Let us know if you republish our content! As a nonprofit news site, tracking the impact of our reporting is crucial. We’d love to hear more about how the work was useful to you and your outlet. And on the off chance that we ask you to remove the story from your site or apply a correction, please do so.
Use best practices for sharing.
