Electrical Insulation Magazine

The Electrical Insulation Magazine is involved, together with its sponsoring society, the Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society, in providing leadership, coordination, and communication, among those who are concerned with dielectric phenomena and measurements; and with electrical insulating materials, including their behavior as it impacts on their use in electrical and electronic apparatus. The Magazine is specifically concerned with publishing articles on the development and characterization of the dielectric, chemical, mechanical and environmental properties of all vacuum, gaseous, liquid, and solid electrical insulation, and with utilization of these materials in circuits and systems under conditions of use. The Magazine is not an alternative to the Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation for traditional academic research or review papers.


The feature articles are oriented toward the engineer and technologist concerned with the use and application of electrical insulating materials and systems.  

While the subject of an article is not rigidly defined, the style is. Articles must be written in a tutorial or review style, rather than as conference or transactions papers, so that anyone interested in electrical insulation and dielectric phenomena can appreciate and learn about a particular area with which they may not be entirely familiar. If the style of the submission does not fit, then it may be rejected. In general, the length of an article is limited to 8 pages. Authors are encouraged to submit an abstract to the Editor-in-Chief to ensure relevance of a paper topic before submission of a full paper.

The Magazine articles can express opinions, however, they must be clearly identified as opinion rather than well-documented fact.  Commercial subjects can be discussed as long as the article is not perceived as a commercial pitch.

In addition to the technical articles, the magazine carries features such as new products, industry news, meeting and conference dates, regional news, etc.  The Magazine is a vehicle for Society news and, in particular, news regarding the Society sponsored conferences.

Contributions are sought for all sections of the Magazine. The writing style and requirements vary somewhat for each of the sections.  See one of the current issues of EI Magazine for the style of the presentation.

All initial abstracts, subsequent articles and contributions can be submitted to the current EiC, Dr Mark Winkeler ([email protected]).
