AUDIT OF CIRCULATION
STATEMENT OF POLICY
The Tube & Pipe Journal’s objective is to disseminate new and complete information relating to the producing and fabricating of metal tube and pipe. The main
editorial text consists of articles and news releases designed to assist owners,
managers, manufacturing engineers, supervisors, and foremen in the evaluation
of new methods and techniques. The policy of the publisher is to be nonpartisan,
favoring no one product or company. The representations of facts and opinions
expressed in the articles are those of the author and are not necessarily endorsed
by the publisher and this journal. By including information on new products, new
literature, and industry news, etc., this impartiality is strived for and extends
to the mention of trade names. Unless product identification makes reference
unavoidable, the generic name is used when feasible. We acknowledge that on
occasion there may be oversights or errors. The editors regret such oversights and
re-emphasize their policy to be impartial at all times. The publisher reserves the
right to refuse advertising it deems inappropriate for publication in The Tube &
Pipe Journal’s, including ads for classes of products and services not considered of
significant interest to the readership.
