The autoionization process has an important role in many areas such as satellite line formation, inner-shell ionization, and diagnostics of astrophysical and fusion plasmas. We have here reported autoionization rates for some levels of Na-like tungsten (W63+) and gold (Au68+), and Mg-like tungsten (W62+) and gold (Au67+) using AUTOSTRUCTURE atomic code. In calculations, the Breit interactions, quantum electrodynamics and configuration interaction effects have been considered. The results obtained for tungsten ions have been compared with other available results. Also new results for gold ions have been presented.
