Whether you write about law, political science, or technology, you can be assured of reaching a worldwide audience when you license your content with us. Our vast reach means that you will not have to worry about signing a bunch of individual distribution deals—ACI will make it easy for people to find your content. You will also be in good company; our authors include such luminaries as Eugene Volokh of The Volokh Conspiracy, Anthony B. Sanders of Confounded Interest, and Vincent Racaniello of Virology Blog and This Week in Virology.   

If you want to maximize your content’s reach, be sure to sign up for full-text distribution and archiving. This will ensure that your content appears in the Newstex News & Commentary Blog Index (“Newstex”) in its entirety instead of as an abstract. Not only will this make it easier for people to read your work, but it also creates an enduring archive of your publication that will ensure that your hard work is accessible to future generations.

Enhanced metadata

Easy sharing

Sharing and collaboration tools make it easy for people to share your work with friends and colleagues. This helps your content reach a wider audience.

A word about the difference between full text and abstracts

Some of the publications in Newstex are abstracts rather than full text. This means that, instead of displaying the full post, we only display a machine-generated summary of the content. While this can help bring your content to a wider audience, we highly recommend signing up for full-text distribution and archiving in order to get the most out of your relationship with ACI.

Our distribution partners

Your blog articles will be accessible through a variety of industry-targeted content distribution and discovery channels. Our distribution partners include LexisNexis, Thomson WestLaw, ProQuest, NewsEdge, QuoteMedia, and NewsCred.
