NCM Editorial Exchange

The goal of NCM is to strengthen the editorial and economic viability of ethnic news outlets. As the core of this vision, we encourage an Editorial Exchange among our media members by: facilitating online exchange - reprinting member articles on our award winning website; and by encouraging members to reprint each other’s content to leverage the stories and issues affecting America’s ethnic and minority communities. We are regularly enhancing technical capabilities to expand upon this vision, so check the site often.

The NCM Website - - will select, publish and promote editorial content provided by participating media partners. NCM also encourages its members to reprint content from other NCM members, consistent with the following points, which shall be understood and accepted by all parties.


  • NCM will credit the source publication and original author.
  • If NCM members use articles republished on the NCM site, they must still credit original author and publication.
  • If NCM members reprint articles from other NCM members on a web site, they must link to the web site of the source publication whenever possible.


  • If NCM member reprints an article from another NCM member, they must first notify an NCM Editorial Exchange Editor.
  • Any stories reprinted without permission from NCM or without paying the fee will be considered in violation of copyright laws.


  • In the rare cases where the NCM member who originally published the article demands a reprint fee, this fee must be paid in full by the NCM member seeking permission to reprint the article.
  • This fee will be paid directly to the NCM member who originally published the article, according to their billing and payment guidelines.
