Contribute to Parking, the leading magazine for and about the parking industry!

Published by the National Parking Association—the first association in the U.S. to serve the parking industry—Parking is the magazine for parking professionals. Parking—The Magazine of Industry Leadership and Innovation—is a business journal that speaks to industry leaders, decision makers and managers responsible for advancing technology, business effectiveness and parking performance. It features best practices, industry research, trends and insights.

Author's Guidelines

NPA welcomes article submissions for Parking magazine from members, industry experts and outside authors. To submit an article for consideration:
  1. Submit an article that aligns with an editorial calendar theme. Email for availability and deadlines. 
  2. Write approximately 1,000 words with subheads and a how-to call-out section. Best practice suggests sentence length should be 17-23 words. 
  3. Provide insights into trends, technology or issues in the parking industry. Articles should not favor any commercial product/service and should use generic product names where possible.
  4. Provide your photo, accompanying illustrations/artwork in .jpg, .eps or .tiff format with a minimum of 300 dpi resolution. References should be included as appropriate

Articles must be exclusive to Parking magazine and not submitted to any other industry publication. As an author, you are responsible for the accuracy of your article and that it does not infringe on any other copyright. All published submissions become the property of the National Parking Association. NPA does not pay for articles; we do recognize an author with a byline and credit. An author of an accepted article will be required to sign an editorial release before publication of the article. NPA reserves the right to reject any submission at the discretion of the editor.

Interested in becoming a columnist? NPA has several columns each month focused on best practices and sharing parking knowledge. Columns are generally 350-600 words. You can write just one column or several. Email to learn how you can contribute.
