Who We Are
AAC is one of the largest electrical engineering communities in the world and is the foremost resource for EEs. We are always looking for articles that cater to young professional electrical engineers, though we occasionally accept beginner’s articles, you may assume that your audience will be bright, experienced, and informed; as such, your writing will be highly scrutinized.
What We Publish
We are especially interested in industry articles that take a stand, tell an industry-relevant story, offer a controversial opinion with facts and links to back it up, provide a compelling and unique review, or give an insider’s view on some facet of an industry (automotive, lighting, etc.).
We are more interested in informative articles than advertorial content.
Our site is independent and we maintain that independence by rejecting proposals for blatant marketing pieces. We do, however, accept blog proposals. If you are interested in submitting a relevant and engaging blog to our site, please adhere to the follow guidelines:
Industry Articles are generally about 800 words
Topics can be of your choice. We encourage contributors to write about the news of the day and your personal observations and opinions on your field of expertise, issues related to the engineering profession, and topics of general interest to engineers.
Industry Articles must not have been published on any other site.
We look for an independent voice that adds to the overall tone of our site. Humor is welcomed. Slang is discouraged.
We encourage you to contribute pictures, tables, charts, diagrams, etc. that illustrate your topic. We reserve the right to change them to align with the general feel of our site.
If you choose to write about your company's specific products or services, do not use overtly promotional language. Describing technical details, processes, applications, etc. is much more useful and informative for our readers.
Industry Articles will be reviewed for the appropriateness of content and copy edited by our copy desk before being posted by AAC.
Not all articles submitted to us will be posted; the technical content director will work with you as time permits.
Company contributions are unpaid, but highly visible (over 3.5M pageviews per month).
We have a standard agreement we ask contributors to sign. Its goal is to make sure what contributors write is original and we have rights to use and reuse it as needed.
We strongly encourage company contributors to monitor the AAC website, reply to comments on your own articles and actively comment on other articles. Your comments are your own, posted by you and will not be reviewed or copy edited.
