Technical Articles in Engineers4engineers - Guidelines - October 2001

We invite the submission of good quality technical articles for publication in our ‘Technical Information’ Section. We do not offer any payment, and we do not make any charges. We do acknowledge the source, and publish the author’s name (unless of course, he/she prefers to be anonymous).

The advantages to you, the expert in your field, of having an article published in Eng4eng are:

1 You will have the satisfaction of having your paper published, and for it to be available to thousands of engineering professionals - immediately.
2 If you are in business, interested parties will notice you, and will be able to contact you. It will be indirectly advertising your expertise.

The advantage to us, Engineers4engineers, is that educative articles increase the attraction of the site.

For acceptance, an article should meet the following criteria:

1 The subject is one which would be of interest to an Engineering Professional.
2 The author will be an authority on the chosen subject.
3 The person submitting the article to us for publication will certify that that he/she is the owner of its copyright, and that he/she give permission to to publish the article in the Engineers4engineers web site. We would ask that you do not give permission for any other party to publish the same article on their web site. This does not prevent the author from publishing the article on the author’s web site.

Note: In the UK, if you created the article, and did not copy it from anyone else, and have not assigned the rights to any other party, then you own the copyright.

4 The article will not be an obvious advertising medium for the services/products of any particular company, but at the bottom of the article, there can be a link to the author’s email address, or to their web site, or to their advert in eng4eng. For example: An article on ‘Fundamentals of the Management of Change in the Manufacturing Industries’. could have the following type of note at the end, with suitable hyperlinks.
Fred Nurk has spent 25 years in the consultancy field, and is the Technical Director of Nurk’s Engineering Management Consultancy.
5 The directors of Engineers4engineers reserve the right to reject any material which they decide is unsuitable.

Procedure

1 Please first send a brief outline of your article, and a note regarding your qualifications of expertise in your chosen subject.
2 We will email you back immediately, and either say - Yes, excellent, please proceed, or provide reasons for not proceeding (eg already got six others writing on the same subject)
3 Suggest then you write your piece. Please submit in one of these formats:
Word format (.doc)
Works format (.wks)
Rich Text Format (.rtf)
and we will convert it to HTML. Any diagrams either in GIF, BMP, JPEG, or DXF. If you cannot do any of these, let us know what you can do, and we’ll see if we can convert.
4 We will have a look at the article, maybe make some suggestions, and then publish on our site, but only visible by the use of a password which we will make known to you.
5 When you are satisfied with the article as published, let us know, and we will make it visible to all visitors to Eng4eng
