Our Editorial Calendar will remain the 4-quarter system focused on the categories listed below. We feel this is working and encourage companies and PR agencies to get familiar with the season variations and the annual conferences and events Architosh covers in the CAD and 3D industries. Contacting us early is highly advisable; planning editorial features and advertising campaigns around key announcements such as new software releases, introductions, updates, and event news takes careful planning.

Bear in mind our editorial calendar is not rigid. We publish all types of content year-round, even outside our quarterly focus topics to meet the needs of our corporate sponsors (advertisers).

Helpful Notes

Generally speaking, we start to plan our main features for any particular quarter approximately one to two quarters prior to it. However, that is the ideal, and oftentimes schedules slip or new items come up that we fit into a calendar focus. For best results, please consider these helpful notes:

  • Contact us early for software product reviews (at least 2-5 months prior to publication date)
  • Contact us early also for big events, major announcements, et cetera
  • Contact us as early as possible for executive interviews

For broad editorial and coordinated advertising-planning, we encourage you to contact us any time of the year to discuss your needs. The same goes for company-based media (press) events. If you would like us to cover your media needs at an event that we don’t have on our Editorial Calendar, please contact us at [email protected]

Editorial Submissions (Guest Articles)

Architosh enjoys receiving guest contributor articles for publication consideration. We have two paths for guest writers, including corporate paid writers, to consider for the publication of content on Architosh. The most important criterion for publication consideration under either path is whether or not your contributed article is of educational value to our audience. We seek guest contributions that add value to Architosh. Here are the two paths and the steps to take for guest editorial submissions:

  • High-quality educational and/or position articles on AEC/CAD industry topics (see examples)
  • 600 – 1200 words required
  • 2 corporate-sponsored URL link targets are allowed “below the fold”
  • 2 article-supporting URL link targets are required anywhere in the article (non-corporate, eg. Wikipedia, other publication, other Architosh article, et cetera)
  • 1 corporate-sponsored URL link target in the About Author section (bottom of the article)

The cost for Viewpoint contributions is USD 0.00. (Free)

Path 2 — Guest Feature Contributions

  • High-quality educational feature article on AEC/CAD industry topics (article types below)
  • Article type can be:  Interview, Case-Study, White-Paper, Position/Advocacy, How-To, Featured Video, Product In-Depth, or a Firm Profile, Artist, Designer, Engineer, or AEC professional profile. 
  • 700 – 2000 words required
