How to Contribute
To contribute to AutoInc., several avenues are available. All contributions to the print version of AutoInc. are subject to publication on the AutoInc. Web site and/or the ASA Web site. Published material becomes the exclusive right of ASA and AutoInc.
Each bi-month, AutoInc. includes features in the following general categories: mechanical, collision, and management. Management articles are predominantly written by Automotive Management Institute (AMI) instructors. If you have an interest in writing a feature article, please contact the AutoInc. editor (firstname.lastname@example.org). Approximately 50 percent of AutoInc. features are contributed from outside writers. Providing industry information for possible inclusion in AutoInc. is another way to contribute.
Our readers are primarily the owners and managers of independent automotive repair businesses. Articles must be geared toward our readership, exclusive to AutoInc., and approximately 1,200 to 1,500 words long. AutoInc. feature articles must not be a promotional piece for specific products or services.
As space permits, a small photo of the author may appear at the end of the article with the bio.
Text can be submitted via e-mail or on a Macintosh-compatible disk. Electronic submissions should also accompany a hard copy. Please include a brief bio about the author. Accompanying art is always welcomed. Preferred formats include electronic TIF or JPEG files (300 DPI resolution).
AutoInc. is always in search of industry experts to contribute to its bi-monthly Guest Editorial column. If you would like to write a guest editorial, or would like to suggest a topic of a future editorial, please contact us. The Guest Editorial column is about 500 words. It includes a brief bio about the author at the end of the article, and a “head-and-shoulders” photo is required, which will appear with the editorial. (Photo will be returned upon request.)
Guest Editorials do not necessarily reflect the opinion of AutoInc. or the Automotive Service Association (ASA).
