The Building Safety Journal features four different types of articles: Deep Dives, Technical Topics, Personal Perspectives and Quick Hits. A brief run-down of each (including word count) is below.

  • Deep Dives: Analytical articles of 600 to 2,000 words that get into the core concepts behind an issue.
  • Technical Topics: Practical articles of 600 to 1,500 words that detail technical content.
  • Personal Perspectives: Stories of professionals at work, ranging from 600 to 1,000 words, which includes interviews, essays, first-hand accounts and reported profiles.
  • Quick Hits: Short, informative articles of 300 to 600 words that feature key takeaways.

We edit all submissions for clarity, grammar and organization (following standard AP guidelines). Any accompanying images or artwork need to be high-resolution images (at least 1920 x 1200 pixels, 300 dpi). Captions/descriptions should accompany photos/graphics, including any photo credit/copyright.

Our purpose is to educate, not promote. With that in mind, please omit specific product mentions and only discuss product innovations in terms of generic technological advances that impact the user. Additionally, we cannot run any content that appears to be advocating or opposing a specific building product or technology during (or immediately leading up to) a code development cycle where code changes are under consideration. When citing statistics, facts, reports and sources please include a link for reader reference.
