Author Guidelines

We welcome both theoretical and practical works that deal with progressive, non-violent, and non-oppressive, post development engineering practices that enhance gender, racial, class, and cultural equity. Original articles up to 5000 words excluding captions, bylines, notes, and references are required to be submitted electronically as Microsoft Word or Open Office documents pending review. Final submission (following review and acceptance) will be as ‘pdf’ files.

Authors are advised to ensure that their work is appropriately grounded in a review of existing literature. Submissions are accepted with the understanding that they will be subject to review and editorial revision and that they neither have been nor will be published elsewhere.

Articles will be published under one of four categories:

  • Critiques of Engineering Practices
  • Alternative Practices in Engineering
  • Engineering Pedagogy
  • Public Policy and Engagement


All manuscripts and materials should be submitted through this website by registering as an author on this page.

The Editor-in-Chief may decline to consider a manuscript for several reasons, including inadequate evidence that the method is substantially new and promising, poor preparation, an insufficiently clear and detailed presentation, and a lack of adherence to the journal’s guidelines for manuscript preparation. The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to reject manuscripts. The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to make the final decision when conflicts of editorial opinion arise. Once a manuscript has been accepted for consideration, it will be assigned to the Manuscript Editor for distribution to reviewers. Articles will be reviewed blindly by two or three persons with expertise in the area.
