Industrial Engineer welcomes feature articles that focus on industrial engineering issues, problems, and solutions, as well as recent developments and research that may have a significant impact on the practice of industrial engineering.
While every submission will be considered for publication, emphasis will be placed on the article’s practical value and analytical approach. Highly theoretical or statistical articles are discouraged. Articles based on experience and actual hands-on operating situations, those that take a how-to tone, and those that have valuable applications in a working environment are favored. Authors are encouraged to include supporting graphics and high-quality color photographs with articles or suggest where IIE may obtain them.
Articles submitted to Industrial Engineer should be offered on an exclusive basis and limited to 3,500 words. Articles will be edited for publication, and all editorial changes will be made solely at the discretion of the editor. Members of the editorial staff may contact authors for clarifications of fact or intent. The editor makes the final decision about whether to accept or reject an article.
IIE publishes several other periodicals. If the editor determines that your submission is more appropriate for one of them, your article may be published in a periodical other than Industrial Engineer. Under these circumstances, the editor will attempt to obtain your permission before publication, though this is not always possible due to time constraints.
We welcome contributors from every corner of the globe. However, all submissions must be submitted in English. Terms that appropriate the native culture are acceptable; entire sentences are not.
Industry-specific jargon (such as in the areas of manufacturing or supply chain) can be difficult to translate, so pay special attention to choice of language around statistics and technical applications. Simplify this language when possible.
We have high editorial standards and adhere to The Associated Press Stylebook for all grammatical uses. Translated articles should be proofread against the latest version of this guide.
