Author Guidelines

The Engineering Design Graphics Journal is published by the Engineering Design Graphics (EDG) Division of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). Papers submitted are reviewed by an Editorial Review Board for their contribution to Engineering Graphics, Technical Graphics, Graphics Education and appeal to the readership of graphics educators.
Clearly identify all figures, graphs, tables, etc. All figures, graphs, tables, etc. must be accompanied by a caption. Illustrations will not be redrawn. All line work must be black and sharply drawn and all text must be large enough to be legible if reduced.
The editorial staff may edit manuscripts for publication after return from the Board of Review. Upon acceptance, the author or authors will be asked to review comments, make necessary changes and submit both a paper copy and a digital text file.
Page Charges will apply for all papers printed in the EDG Journal. The rate is determined by the status of the first author listed on the paper at the time the paper is received by the Editor. The rates are as follows:

No charge for EDGD members
$10 per page for ASEE, but not EDGD members
$25 per page for non-ASEE members
This charge is necessitated solely to help offset the increasing costs of publication. Page charges are due upon notification by the Editor and are payable to the Engineering Design Graphics Journal.
