WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
We’re interested in articles that will help our readers
do their jobs. So if you’ve learned (even the hard way)
how to design, construct, or repair a concrete structure better,
faster, or more cost-effectively, let us know. We’re especially
interested in case studies.
Although most articles printed in CI are submitted as
fully developed manuscripts, our editors can also assist authors
in article development. If you have an idea for an article, feel
free to e-mail Rex Donahey, Editor-in-Chief, an outline or photo
series. He can be reached at Rex.Donahey@concrete.org.
He’ll be glad to help you develop it into an article.
