All BINJ articles published on the Wire are available for republishing by independent community news outlets for free—and by larger commercial news outlets and chains for a fee. Massachusetts-based independent community news outlets are also encouraged to syndicate their news articles to other outlets on MassWire free-of-charge and offer them to other independent community news outlets for free and to larger commercial news outlets and chains for a fee. Interested independent community news outlets and commercial news outlets and chains can contact us at masswire@binjonline.org for more information about MassWire services.

The public at large has free access to all MassWire articles here at masswire.news.

All MassWire articles published prior to September 2023 are available to view on the MassWire archive page at the BINJ site.
