Our approach to external linking


How links are chosen for NMT Online

Nepal Medicos Times includes links to both internal (NMT) and external (non-NMT) websites. We select links that are editorially relevant to the content they are linking from and are suitable for the likely audience.
These links are included for a number of reasons, including:
  • for further relevant information or other key source material
  • for background information
  • for useful practical information
  • for entertainment or enjoyment
  • for further informed comment
We do not link to external sites in return for cash, services or any other consideration in kind.

Links to external websites

External links are selected and reviewed when the page is published. However, the NMT is not responsible for the content of external websites. This is because:
  • the NMT does not produce them or maintain/update them
  • the NMT cannot change them
  • they can be changed without the NMT's knowledge or agreement.
Some of our external links may be to websites which also offer commercial services, such as online purchases.

Links to user generated material

Some of the content we link to on both NMT sites and external ones is generated by members of the public (messageboards and photo-sharing sites for example). The views expressed are those of the public and unless specifically stated are not those of the NMT. If you consider this content to be in breach of the house rules as indicated on the website, please alert the moderators or site owners on the sites where the material appears.

Sign posts and content information

Increasingly, nepalmedicostimes.com is making more video and audio content available online .The NMT online guidelines state:
  • Any material on the NMT homepage must be suitable for a general audience including children.
  • The first click from the NMT homepage should not normally lead straight to a page which includes material which is unsuitable for a general audience.
Where appropriate, users are informed of the nature of the material they might expect to see or hear by clear labelling on destination pages and on the video or radio players.
