It has been a busy weekend. One person copied multiple articles of mine for his blog. While complimentary, this can create a negative user experience since none of the links on his copy of the articles work. Another person added a new link to the Understanding Infantilism home page. This is fine, but a link that went straight to the data being referred to might be more helpful for the reader.
Here it goes:
1. Deep linking to pages is permitted and encouraged. Deep linking involves linking directly to the specific page or section within a page, as opposed to just the index or home page. (By the way, I hope ADISC is OK with deep linking. Otherwise, I'll have to move about a half dozen links.)
2. It is OK to reuse plots, statistics, and/or discussion, given the following conditions:
a. No more than three questions per article are reused, and in no more than three articles per website.
b. The website, journal, etc., is non-profit.
c. A reference (in printed media) or link (in web pages) to the source material is included in the article. This may be to the particular results page, the surveys project page, or the home page.
3. Permission for other uses can be requested from the article's authors. Generally, there will be an email link either at the top or bottom of the page. Since the survey results are the work of both the analyst and the surveyees, these requests will be reviewed liberally.
4. Additional survey data can be requested for research. Data about specific surveyees or data that might compromise the anonymity of surveyees will not be released.
Fair use is permitted, of course. However, I'm not sure how to mention this without forcing a definition of fair use.
