Journal of Pyrotechnics Issues
1 to 26 (1995 to 2007)
For Issues 27 and beyond
(2008+) of the Journal of Pyrotechnics
Issues of the Journal of Pyrotechnics [ISSN 1082-3999] appear twice a
year. Early issues contained 40 to 50 pages. More recent issues contain
70 to 80 pages printed in 8-1/2x11" format with medium-sized print.
Areas of pyrotechnics addressed include fireworks, pyrotechnic special effects, propellants &
rocketry, and civilian pyrotechnics. The Journal is "dedicated
to the advancement of pyrotechnics through the sharing of information".
This is accomplished with a mix of different types of articles; however,
most fall into two areas. One area is reports on pyrotechnic and fireworks
research conducted by both professional scientists and individual experimenters.
The other area is reviews of various technical and craft areas of pyrotechnics,
some at an advanced level and others at a tutorial level.
