By “abstract” we mean a 30 word non-verbatim summary of the news or facts reported in an GP article which does not form part of a longer work and does not misrepresent the original GP article.
These are the conditions you must comply with in order to produce a summary:
• you source GP as the author of any article from which you have derived a summary by way of an attribution such as “[journalist name] at the Gas Pathways reported that”, with a hypertext link from the word “Natural Gas World” to the original story published on gaspathways.com;
