I'd like to write an article for Industrial Engineer. What's the process?

Anyone can submit an article for review by the editors of Industrial Engineer. If your story is still in the conceptual state, email a synopsis or outline of your article idea to managing editor Michael Hughes. If the article is already written, email the story to him at the same address.

Feature articles are 2,500 to 4,000 words in length and should focus on industrial engineering issues, problems, and solutions, as well as recent developments and research that have a significant impact on the practice of industrial engineering. Articles based on experience, those that take a 'how-to' tone, and those that provide thoughtful analysis of the state of technology are favored.

For additional details, refer to the author guidelines.

Where do I send a letter to the editor for publication in the magazine?

Send letters electronically to managing editor Michael Hughes or by mail to Michael Hughes, Industrial Engineer, 3577 Parkway Lane, Suite 200, Norcross, GA 30092. All correspondence to the editor will be considered for publication in the magazine. Letters from anonymous authors will not be considered for publication, but the editor will consider requests to print a letter with the author's name withheld. Letter writers must include their city and state of residence or employment. (Place of employment and title are optional.) Please limit letters to 300 words.

I live outside the United States. Why does it take so long for me to receive my copy of Industrial Engineer?

There is often a delay of six to eight weeks for magazines delivered outside the United States due to postal service processes. Members and subscribers outside the United States can elect to have their magazines delivered by airmail each month. There is an additional charge for this service. Airmail delivery takes approximately one and a half to two weeks. To order airmail delivery, contact IIE Member and Customer Support, (800) 494-0460, (770) 449-0460.

I sent a press release to the editor and would like to find out if the information will be used in a future issue. Who do I call?

Because we receive hundreds of press releases each month, it's not possible for the editorial staff to reply to every company that sends a press release. Please do not call to inquire about press releases. If information about your company or its products is used in the magazine, you will be notified by receiving a copy of the magazine or a tearsheet.
