All HNS articles are distributed via email to HNS's current list of newspapers and online news sites, as well as to a few other history-related services and projects. A list of current recipients is below. The author receives a copy of the text exactly as distributed. All authors of HNS articles retain copyright in their works.

HNS uses various search engines to discover each piece's publication and alerts authors, roughly within a month of distribution, of what it learns. Still, it remains difficult to discover all places of publication. Search engines do not provide full coverage, some newspapers do not place all of their print content on the World Wide Web, and editors rarely inform authors of the publication of articles that are syndicated, as are HNS's. When authors do occasionally learn directly from colleagues, friends, and readers of their articles' publication, they are asked to advise HNS's editor.
