How to Contribute
To contribute to AutoInc., several avenues are available. All contributions are subject to publication on the AutoInc. website and/or the ASA website. Published material becomes the exclusive right of ASA and AutoInc.
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 25 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 email. 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).
