A new year, a new look for EE

Jan. 3, 2019

Greetings, Evaluation Engineering readers, and Happy New Year. We’ve begun the final year of this decade, and I hope everyone was able to get some time off over these past couple weeks and have a great holiday break. Getting back into work productivity mode is never easy, but here we are.

As we trek into 2019, we at EE have some exciting developments we’re happy to share with our audience. For our print magazine subscribers, you’ve probably already seen our January issue, which has been completely redesigned for a more aesthetically pleasing look. Check out the digital edition here, or the online PDF version here. We’ve made better use of white space, increased the size of imagery, and overall overhauled the design of each section of the magazine to make it easier on the eyes. An audience of electrical test & measurement engineers doesn’t expect a flashy trade publication for this market, but boosting print aesthetics never hurts, and EE was overdue for a facelift.

Likewise, later this month EE will be launching a redesigned website, featuring a simplified layout and more centralized content organization.

Both the print and online overhauls will result in a more navigable, mobile, and digital-friendly EE. Meanwhile, we’ll be providing the same great content you’ve come to know, while taking a more refined focus on our roots: electronic test & measurement.

And while we strive to produce as much staff-written content as possible, sharing the expertise of outside subject matter experts continues to be a crucial element of our EE content. So, we encourage our readers and past contributors to reach out to us if you are interested in writing an article or blog to be featured on EE, or providing commentary for us to use.

Each 2019 EE print issue will include two “Special Reports”—one focusing on an instrumentation topic, and one focusing on an applications topic. Our February Special Reports are already finishing up production. For the March issue, our instrumentation topic is Power Supplies & Loads, while our applications topic is Electronic Product Safety Test. These reports rely on contributed commentary regarding market trends in these topic areas, predictions, and highlight new products on the market. We utilize a questionnaire to acquire this commentary that I sent out to a pool of industry contacts on Wednesday. The response deadline is Monday, January 21st.

If you’d like to contribute commentary for either March report topic and would like its questionnaire, or have any other questions regarding EE content, don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email at [email protected].

I sincerely hope you enjoy the new-look EE, and wish all our readers a great 2019!
