Submit Products & News for Publication on Automation.com

Product and News Release Submission Guidelines and Specifications

  • Send releases electronically to press@automation.com[1].
  • Send releases in WORD format (as an attachment) or as plain text in the body of your e-mail.  Please do not send releases in PDF format – it is often difficult to extract text and images from them.
  • Include any applicable images as separate attachments in .JPG, .GIF or .PNG format. Please do not embed images in the e-mail message or in the attached WORD document. Images 500 pixels wide by 313 pixels high work best with the website/e-newsletter layouts, so please make every effort to provide this dimension. 
  • Product releases must be about a new or enhanced product.
  • News releases can include company news, acquisitions, application stories, new or enhanced services, literature items, catalogs, white papers, data sheets, etc.
  • News & Product releases must include date of release, contact, and company information.
  • Because our readers want the most recent industry happenings, we will not publish any news release submitted to Automation.com 60 days or more after the ORIGINAL release date. Our content team searches other news sites for every applicable press release to determine the original release date. Ensure that press@automation.com[2] is added to your press release distribution list for initial release dates.
  • We will typically not publish news releases that are unrelated to automation or those that announce sales price promotions. Additionally, we do not publish announcements of show exhibition, application stories that do not name the end user, magazine awards, or announcements of trivial enhancements to products.
  • Please include an e-mail address, phone number and web site address for further product inquiries. All releases will include a link to your web site’s main page. 
  • Again, all releases must be timely and industry related.
  • Please NO Zip files. Press releases sent as Zip files will not be published.

Note: We reserve the right to use our editorial discretion when publishing your product and news releases on our site.
