We have investigated the contribution of excitation-autoionization to the electron impact ionization of Zn+ and Ga+ using the binary encounter approximation. Hartree-Fock velocity distributions for the bound electrons have been used throughout the calculations of direct and indirect ionization cross-sections. The calculated cross-sections are in good agreement with recent experiments. We have also compared our results with other theoretical calculations.
