The AEA limits the number of advertisements to be inserted in each issue of Army Engineer magazine in order to provide more space for editorial content. Typically, each issue will contain less than fifteen ads. Most ads accepted are full or half-page in size, and pertain to companies with a direct commercial supporting role to any or all aspects of Army Engineering.
Many companies insert ads in multiple or all issues each year, and some consistently reserve the same premium space (inside front, inside back, and center spread) for those purposes. Ads are to look different enough from editorial pages that readers can tell the difference. To avoid confusion, any ad that looks enough like an editorial story or feature that it could be mistaken for will be labeled "Advertisement" or "Promotion" at the top of each page in type as prominent normal body type.
For other than premium space, the editor inserts ads in locations which may complement the product or service of the advertiser. For example, an ad for an item of construction equipment might be placed near an article written (in general) about Army engineer construction missions. However, in no case will the editorial content of the article in this regard contain any reference to the product advertised on the adjacent page. Editorial content takes priority over ad placement, and ads will not be inserted in such a manner that disrupts easy editorial flow for the reader.
