About CI

CONCRETE INTERNATIONAL is the monthly magazine of the American Concrete Institute and is circulated to engineers, architects, contractors, manufacturers, and technicians responsible for the design, construction, and testing of concrete applications throughout the world. Many of the magazine’s readers and contributors also collaborate in preparing ACI codes and standards and are therefore leaders in the advancement of concrete as a construction material.

    All articles submitted to Concrete International should include:

    No more than 3000 words of text, including author bios and references;
    No more than 8 figures, tables, and illustrations;
    A short biography (100 word maximum) and color passport-style photo of each author;
    A one-paragraph abstract of the article; and
    A maximum of 10 keywords.

    Image format
    While images embedded in the manuscript are fine for the review process, embedded images cannot be used for final publication. All photos and figures should be sent as individual files as well so we can verify that they are of print quality.

    Photos must be sent as .tif or .jpg files. They should be at least 4 x 6 in. at a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Glossy prints or color slides are also acceptable. Author photos should be a minimum of 1 x 1.5 in. at a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.

    Graphs, charts, and line art can be sent as .tif, .jpg, .eps, .xls, .pdf, or .ai files. If your images were created in a different program, please inquire to see if we can accept the file format.

    Cover photos
    We’re always looking for potential cover photos. Cover photos must be portrait (vertical) orientation. They must be sent as .tif or .jpg files and must be at least 8.25 x 10.75 in. at a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Glossy prints (at least 4 x 6 in.) and color slides are also acceptable.


    Articles should be submitted to Lacey J. Stachel, Editorial Assistant, at Submissions can also be mailed to 38800 Country Club Drive, Farmington Hills, MI 48331.


    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 He’ll be glad to help you develop it into an article.
