Why Anyone Can Steal Our Articles. Really.

We believe quality information should be accessible to all and that’s why we publish under a Creative Commons license, which allows anyone, anywhere to republish our articles.

We publish under Creative Commons. We believe in a free flow of information.

So unless otherwise noted, you can republish our articles online or in print for free. You just have to credit us and link to us, and you can’t edit our material or sell it separately.

Republishing guidelines, for print and online

  2. You have to credit Q Costa Rica  — ideally at the top of the article  — with a link back to either our home page, Q Costa Rica or (preferably) the specific article URL on the Q Costa Rica website.
  3. It’s OK to put our articles on pages with ads, but you can’t sell our material separately.
  4. You can republish individual articles, but you can’t systematically republish all of our articles.
