What are we looking for?
- Technical level appropriate to an engineering-oriented audience – our readers aren't coming to Automotive IQ to read about car end-user topics, so articles on seven ways to clean your car, 10 best ways to buy a personalized license plate etc are not what we're looking for
- Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric – articles offering a technical take on topics such as autonomous drive, e-mobility, software, cyber security, 48V, connected cars are right up our street, particularly if you don't find anything similar when searching the site
- Long-form articles are preferred – we don't set a word limit, but we prefer a minimum of 1,000 words per article, complete with a list of appropriate links so that we can show our writers know what they're talking about
How to get involved?
To submit an article topic for consideration, please email our editor, Tom Phillips, at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'Contributor Automotive IQ' and the following information:
- The topic and a brief outline of your proposed article

What happens next?
We will review your article idea, then get back to you if we think it's a good fit for our readers. Then, when you submit the finished work, we'll upload it to the site and send you a private link for your approval.
