Guidelines for Submitting New Product Announcements & News Items
Sending new-product announcements and breaking news stories via email is a simple process. The following items are required:
- Press release or formal product description that includes product name, model, type, with specs, target market, and reader-contact information. Product pricing is a plus, though optional.
- At least one photo of the product in JPEG or PNG format, 72 dpi or higher, and measuring a minimum of 1,000 pixels wide. Ideal size is 1,000 x 600 or higher.
- A video demo or a link to a video related to the product is a major plus and most welcomed.
- Types of new products to send include, obviously, sensors and sensor-related technologies, passive and active components, semiconductors, power and energy-harvesting products, medical and healthcare (wearables), computer boards, embedded systems components, software (security a big area), test & measurement equipment, software, & systems, design aids (CAD, development applications, tools, software, etc.)
- News stories to send include market studies and surveys, standards and mandate introductions and updates, benchmark studies, new tech trends, and applications. Like product announcements, include at least one photo or graphic (graphs, charts, diagrams, etc.) in JPEG or PNG format, 72 dpi or higher, and measuring a minimum of 1,000 pixels wide. Ideal size is 1,000 x 600 or higher. Also again, a video demo or a link to a video related to the news is a major plus and most welcomed.
- Finally, send news and product items via email to Mat Dirjish: firstname.lastname@example.org
Guidelines for Submitting Contributed Articles
Sensors Daily accepts original articles and content from technology companies and vendors, electronics engineers and designers working on challenging and relevant applications, and writers with a track record of reporting authoritatively on current technologies and industry trends. We also welcome new writers who have a unique view of emerging and existing technologies. The types of articles we seek are several.
Tutorials that describe:
- how to solve a complex design problem, and if the article is from a company, yes, you can refer to one of your products as one solution to the design problem.
- how to meet certain standards
- the basics and advanced features of a particular sensor or component and how it can be used in a particular application. For example, pressure sensor basics and how to apply them in automotive safety applications.
Industry trends and market-development articles detailing:
- A current popular application, where it is, and how it will develop in the future or not.
- Where established applications are, the latest developments, and what to expect next. For example, the IoT is here and growing moderately, what will give it a boost to the next level, etc.
- What is a new development, why it’s important or not, and predictions as to what will happen next.
- Tech and procedure demos. Write about a new process or product and detail its possibilities and attributes with a step by step demo of how it works and what application space it fits.
How to submit original content
NOTE: Content must be original and exclusive to Sensors Daily for a period of four weeks from date of publication. After that you are free to publish elsewhere.
- Before anything else, submit a brief abstract, 200 to 500 words describing your article or presentation. If acceptable, you will be notified with any tweaks or modifications. After the changes, if any, are acceptable, proceed to create the finished article.
- The finished article should range in length from 800 to 1200 words, can be longer if warranted, meaning if it’s extremely interesting and informative. MOST IMPORTANT: Do not write with SEO on the brain. Excessive keyword repetitions will be highly frowned upon and rumpus will be raised. Keep writing concise, to the point, and informative without being verbose.
- All contributed content must have an author or authors. We require the author(s) name(s), title(s), company affiliation, a brief bio for each author (two or three sentences), and a photo of each author.
- All contributed articles and content require photos, graphics, diagrams, and/or videos that compliment and help clarify the article’s topics. All photos, graphics, and diagrams require a caption and need to be labeled (i.e., fig 1. table 2, etc.) and referenced to in the article (i.e., see fig.1, see table 2, etc.). Videos require a brief description with the article.
- All photos, graphics, and diagrams must be in JPEG, PNG, or TIFF format, 72 dpi or higher, and measuring a minimum of 1,000 pixels wide. Ideal size is 1,000 x 600 or higher. Videos should be in mp4 format. Also credit the origin/source of all photos and graphics.
- If mathematical equations and chemical formulas are involved, they can be written within the text or presented as photos. Either way is fine.
- NOTE: Text must be submitted in MS Word (.doc) format. No PDFs or HTML please. Also, do not employ intricate formatting of tables, etc., and do not embed photos and graphics in the Word file. Send them as separate files.
- Send abstracts and finished content via email to Mat Dirjish: email@example.com
