When using, reproducing, and/or displaying any Platform Outputs, which includes data and images derived from the platform, we strongly recommend and encourage to you attribute to Media Cloud. You can do this in one of many ways.
As of 2021, we have a canonical dataset paper for Media Cloud through our the Proceedings of the Fifteenth International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media. Please include this citation in your work.
When discussing any Platform Outputs in a written form, note “Media Cloud” as the source or tool used to gather data. A short description of Media Cloud may also be helpful.
If you directly reproduce a Platform Output (e.g. taking a screenshot and using it without making your own visual), you must also attribute Highcharts.com if they were originally attributed to the graphic.[SZ4]
When displaying a visual representation of Platform Outputs, such as a graph, table, “word cloud,” or “word space,” include the text “Source: Media Cloud” or “Data from Media Cloud” near the visual element.
