Dear editors and writers on ukrainetoday.org
5 March, 2021 – By Red Square Maidan
A letter from Euromaidan Press via our Feedback Page.
I recently happened to stumble on the 2 articles below (copy-pasted) and noticed that there were no links to the original material published on our website (Euromaidan Press). This goes against basic journalistic policy, so I kindly ask you to rectify the matter, i.e. publish the link to the original article and see that all future articles are duly credited. Thank you!
We at Euromaidan Press greatly appreciate re-publication of our articles in other media as long as the author/translator is fully credited and a link is given to the original material on our website. Our goal is not to prohibit, but to spread and share news about Ukraine, whether it be historical, cultural, political or social, to the English-speaking environment.
It is most important to draw more attention to Ukraine and its current and past problems, especially in view of the ongoing war in eastern Ukraine, Russian disinformation campaigns and creeping Russification. Thank you for your attention. Christine.
To all the great contributors here on ukrainetoday.org
As a reminder, please always include a link to the original article when posting. This isn’t the first such feedback I’ve gotten from one of our sources. It is respectful and professional.
Also, when posting pictures, please include the photographer if it is included with the picture. Usually you can add it from right below the picture itself. With our current format however, the tops and bottoms of the Featured Images are cut off. I’m afraid there’s nothing we can do about that except once again, add it manually as a caption if possible. Photographers work very hard and often in very difficult circumstances to get pictures of the events covered and they deserve recognition too.
If there isn’t a link inside the article we post, please add the link by copying and pasting the entire article link from the browser address. This is the best way for us to reach our readers responsibly and giving credit to those that are producing our content.
We are all in the same boat so let’s work together. I will be auditing all our articles for a period of time to ensure this is being done. I will also edit them and encourage all our Editors to edit them with this important information if it is not provided in your post. Just like you, I am busy too, so please don’t make me do your work for you ;))
