No. If you do that your hub will be flagged for duplicate content. The content you publish in your hubs cannot be published elsewhere, especially word for word.
No--HubPages work needs to be original and must not be posted elsewhere. If you do post your work elsewhere, or if it already exists online (on a blog or other site), you will get a notification and the work will probably be pulled from being published. I had some trouble with this when I first started off. I was trying to move some of my work from my blog to HubPages. I found that even when I had unpublished it from my blog, I needed to wait at least 24 hours or longer before trying to publish on HubPages.
You can, but you need to unpublish it here first. Then you need to wait until it is off the search engines before putting it somewhere else. The other sites usually have the same rule. They do not want it in two places.
You can post links that go back to your hubs; for instance, you can share them on Facebook, put a link in a piece of text on your blog, or put an RSS Feed on your blog. Not really a good idea to post a hub word for word anywhere but hubpages. Google will sometimes penalize duplicate content, and they also will pick the URL that is oldest or that they see fit, to index; so they send searchers to the more legitimate link, in other words: Meaning the other one will go ignored, so a waste. The rule on HP is that you can't publish anything on here that's been published already, if so you'll get a duplicate content warning; of course, there's considerable debate on what that means, I won't get into it though.
You are not allowed to post the same hub to other sites. If you want to post, then create new article and then post.
Most of these answers are largely on target. But let's put it all together and be very clear. The content you write is legally yours (you have the copyright, even if you don't formally declare it) and you can publish it where you like. But HubPages has very clear rules against duplicate content, so the hubs you publish on HubPages must not contain passages you publish elsewhere on the web, or they will be flagged as duplicate content, and a violation of HubPages rules.
There is one big exception to this. If you create a video, then all the content of the video (images, sounds, written or spoken words) can be present both in a hub and also as a video posted elsewhere (such as YouTube or Vimeo). This is true both for a video hub and also for a video capsule inside a hub. (I confirmed this with HubPages staff recently.)

Are we allowed to republish our articles elsewhere and keep the original hubs here in the mean time?

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but...
