General: Contributors are encouraged to query the editor before submitting editorial, although this is not a requirement. An outline, abstract, or informal description of the article are all acceptable formats for the query. Unsolicited news and product releases are accepted via email. A brief biography of the author is appreciated. Feature articles are accepted via email or postal mail on a CD. Contributors must disclose financial, economic, or professional interest or affiliations that may influence the position taken or methods advocated in their submissions.
The editor prefers that press releases be sent via email, either within the body of the message or as an attached Microsoft Word document.
Feature articles must be submitted exclusively to Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure. If it is declined by Rebuilding America's Infrastructure, it may be submitted elsewhere for publication.
Content: Articles should be authored with consideration of our audience and their daily work. News events, research developments, emerging technologies, management issues, and technical engineering information are all appropriate topics. All contributions are subject to editing for length, content, and appropriate style.
Length: News articles should be 300 to 800 words in length and focus on topical issues rather than detailed technical information. Technical feature articles are to be 1,200 to 2,000 words in length and technical in nature. They generally take a "how to" tone and detail some aspect of civil or structural engineering or land surveying. Non-technical feature articles of 1,000 to 2,000 words in length will also be considered for publication.
Artwork: Contributors are encouraged to submit artwork. Digital images at a resolution of 300 dpi at 4x5 inches or larger in JPG, EPS, TIFF, or PSD format are the preferred format, but color prints (no smaller than 4x6 inches) may be accepted. Graphs, charts, and renderings are also welcome. Please e-mail images, post on an ftp website, or send via postal mail on a CD.
