Call for Articles


Our membership has a long history of having specialized experiences in a diverse range of properties and practice areas. Our members are involved in some of the most sophisticated and challenging valuation environments occurring today.

ASAʼs Machinery & Technical Specialties Committee publishes The MTS Journal, whose purpose is to serve as a tool for providing our members’ insights and experiences from which all may learn and to provide a venue for educated discourse.

Articles that cover the professional practice of valuation as well as specific valuation concepts and methodology are welcome for submission and review.  If you have questions about the suitability of your topic, please contact the MTS Journal Subcommittee Chair for guidance.
