How should I provide attribution?

You must always attribute the Author and 360 as the creator of the material. Each article you download has an attribution noted embed at the end of the article that provides all the details and links that must be kept with your use of an article. To provide appropriate credit, you must:

  • Provide the author’s name and the title of the work
  • Provide a link back to 360’s original source of the work.
  • Provide a link to the CC licence that applies to the original work.
  • Indicate if you made any changes to the work, for example say ‘With 360’

The article that you download comes with no formatting – so that you can easily provide your own to match your style of publication. The attribution text is at the end of the article and it looks a bit like this:

“Written by Francois Galgani, Ifremer, Jan Andries Van Franeker, Wageningen University, Chelsea Rochman, University of Toronto. Originally published under Creative Commons by 360info.”

You are free to reformat this as long as you keep the appropriate credits as listed above. 

It’s up to you (the republisher) to confirm if you are licensed to republish images in our articles. Some images on our site are from commercial providers and cannot be republished without permission. Copyright terms are included in the caption of each image or graphic.

If you republish only part of an article such as a quote the only requirement is that you attribute the quote to the correct author and provide a link back to the original article URL. 

If you rework an article and add to it you should use the attribution ‘with 360’ in the byline and include a link back to the original article.
