(Editor’s note: Newspaper editors and owners who want to be alerted to articles available for republication in print editions can sign up for NonDoc’s free direct text program. This article was updated after its original publication to note ongoing republication sponsorship from Hilliary Communications.)
In an effort to support journalism across the state and connect more Oklahomans with our content, NonDoc is excited to announce our new content-sharing opportunity for all newspapers and magazines in Oklahoma.
Starting today, any Oklahoma publication is welcome to reproduce content published on NonDoc.com in print editions. (Reproduction of our content online is still prohibited per the terms of our site’s user agreement.)
Reproducing NonDoc content in print format comes with a few requirements:
- Bylines must include the author’s name and “NonDoc.com”;
- If a piece needs to be trimmed significantly for space limitations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us another way;
- If a piece is labeled “commentary” on NonDoc.com, it must be noted as “commentary” or “opinion” in print. (Our yellow “commentary” label appears above the featured photo on our articles);
Additionally, editors and publishers are encouraged to list the date that the piece was originally published on NonDoc.com. And if you would like to send an email to email@example.com alerting us to your republishing decisions, that is great, too!
Thank you to our distribution sponsor
Today’s announcement of this new republishing program is made possible thanks to the charitable sponsorship of Hilliary Communications, an internet, telephone and cable company servicing rural Oklahoma and Texas. Hilliary Communications is a third-generation family company founded in 1958.
“All of our Hilliary family companies — from telephone companies to farming — they are all rooted in rural Oklahoma,” said JJ Francais, assistant vice president of external affairs. “Often, small rural newspapers don’t have the same resources that our big metroplex counterparts have. So this is a way to help inform rural Oklahoma.”
The Hilliary family understands the challenges facing newspapers, as they own and operate two newspapers covering southwest Oklahoma: The Southwest Ledger based in Lawton and The Chronicle based in Elgin.
NonDoc filed paperwork for transition to nonprofit operations in 2020 under the Sustainable Journalism Foundation name. One of our goals for that shift was to make our content available for republication by newspapers and magazines across Oklahoma.
