    Am I disallowed to publish a paper that I published some where else on the web when I wrote the paper?

      You can publish it but you will be penalized by HubPages. Which just means your hub score will be lower and you probably won't earn as much from it as you could have. I have a couple of hubs that I had published elsewhere and they hover around 60.

    It's best to just rewrite a unique version of your original designed exclusively for HubPages.  It doesn't take that long once you get the hang of it.

    As has been posted, as long as you have the right to use the material there is not a problem. With that said, typically in the world of search engines, duplicate content is ignored.

    This means if you took an article about the moon that is currently posted somewhere else online and posted it here, it would likely get ignored by the search engines. So when someone searched for the moon, your hubpage would not come up.

    There are exceptions, but it usually works out like this, so you will be best off if you rewrite the content if it is already online somewhere else.

    Brad is right - legally, you can re-post your own work here on HubPages but it's not recommended, because it won't perform well.
