idw distributes its contents via various channels. In addition, idw works together with selected content partners in order to optimise the outreach of news and events
After consulting with idw, content partners embed the selected idw contents into their own program, such as research findings from chemistry or personnel news from universities.
How do I become an idw content partner?
Prerequisites for an content partnership with idw are:
your institution belongs to one of the following groups: broadcasting corporation, publisher, government office, platform provider aimed at one or more idw target groups (journalists, scientists, students, teachers / professors, school children, general public with an interest in science)
the news and events of idw are not the only editorials or current content on your websites
you indicate individual sources of the shared news and link back to the original article in idw
you make a clear and distinct reference to the cooperation with idw both on your websites and in your General Terms and Conditions
idw has your permission to refer to you as their outreach partner on idw web pages
you inform idw on the access numbers of the shared contents
you do not share everything, but rather a part of the idw contents
For the purpose of automatic sharing of idw news and events, idw will provide their content partners with a powerful API with login details and a documentation. The interface delivers all idw news and events and comes with numerous built-in filters, allowing the contents to be filtered according to:
type of news or events (e.g. research findings, research projects, personnel announcements or conferences, symposia, (annual) conventions)
subject areas (e.g. biology, medicine, electrotechnology, society or bundled topics such as health or technology & industry)
target groups (e.g. journalists, scientists, teachers or professors)
region or range (e.g. Berlin, Bavaria or regional / supraregional)
language (German / English)
Sharing the idw contents is generally free of charge. However, idw charges you a non-recurring fee for setting up the API and also – when necessary – for creating additional filters for contents.
