MSC is always interested in hearing about new and exciting products that would be of interest to our readers. We periodically include a "Product Case Study" feature in our products section. A case study focuses on the use of a particular product in real-world applications.
In addition, tell us how your product provides a significant or unique benefit to the fabricated structural steel design and construction industry. Your submittal should include:
Only submissions written in the form of a case study will be considered. You may submit your case study at any time. The MSC editorial staff will select one or more product case studies each month (from the submissions received) to be featured with our New Products section. MSC cannot guarantee publication of your submission in a particular issue. Also, due to space limitations, the Product Case Study feature may not appear in every issue. There is no charge for submitting your product case study for consideration.
