Ways to Share Research

What are the different ways I can share Forrester’s research?

Customer obsession isn’t something you can achieve alone; so, we’ve created several ways for Forrester license holders to share our research to supercharge your teams, accelerate your ideas, and drive growth.

Sharing with colleagues:

  • Excerpts: Clients may share up to a paragraph of cited text from a Forrester report in internal-only material. To cite more content or for external usage, please see our Citation Policy.
  • Images: To enhance your internal presentations, clients may share a single published figure or image from a Forrester report. To cite more images or for external usage, please see our Citation Policy.
  • Share With Colleague: Forrester Decisions and Forrester Market Insights VIP Leaders, Leaders, and Team license holders can share up to 10 reports with up to 25 colleagues who do not have a current Research subscription.
  • Click & Share: Forrester Age of the Customer Research, BT and M&S Research, and Technology Industry Research clients can share up to four reports with up to four colleagues who do not have a current Research subscription.
  • Internal Reprints: To inspire new thinking and enable your team to drive change, Forrester clients can share a piece of Forrester research across the organization with a Reprints purchase.

Sharing with the market:

  • Citations: If you are looking to cite Forrester Research in external materials, our citations team can help. Review our Citation Policy then contact the team at citations@forrester.com.
  • External Reprints: A digital Forrester report reprint helps you gain market credibility and drive demand with your target buyers. Clients can share full reproductions and/or distributions of Research with a Reprints purchase.
  • Content Marketing: Work with Forrester Consulting to create custom content that reaches your target buyers and fuels demand.

Can I download and share PDFs of Forrester’s research?

Forrester offers clients the ability to download and print PDFs for personal use only. While we’re able to extend this courtesy to help you to be bold no matter where or how you’re working, sharing of PDFs is prohibited. As part of our Terms of Service, you agree not to download and share Forrester reports with non-licensed individuals or third parties, which could result in suspension of your account.
