Writers Guidelines for Contributors to Power & Motion

Contribute Content to Power & Motion

Power & Motion accepts contributed content that is technically oriented and of interest to our audience that includes engineers, designers, and technicians who specify components for modern fluid power systems and other motion control systems they design, install, or maintain. Our readers are looking for articles that will inform and educate, so delving deep into technical topics is just fine with us!

Our readers are looking for information on how to solve problems, how to improve their skills, and to learn about the latest technology in a useful application context.

Contributed content should be about the what, how and why rather than a product pitch. Contributed articles should be as generic as possible, although products can be mentioned as examples when describing a technology or solution.

There is no charge for submitting an article for consideration, and we will post it upon being accepted for publication.

Getting Started

We have put together a contributed article packet to make it easier to get a contributed article posted on our site. The README file contains all the details you need to know about and there is a template we use for all contributed content. We also have a document describing what type of images we need since there are so many formats and details. We want to get your content up as quickly as possible and these details help make that happen.

There is no editorial schedule for content, so we can use it at any time. Likewise, you don’t have to do just one article. We look forward to posting your articles as they become available. We do ask for exclusivity so please send us content that has not been offered or published on other sites.

Design & Engineering Group

Our other sites can also use contributed content as well. Direct queries to the appropriate group. Make sure to send a one paragraph abstract or an outline first if you have an idea for an article but have not written it yet.
