For the first forty years of its existence the Technical Section published annual Proceedings, initially as a single volume and ultimately in three volumes per year, which contained technical papers read at numerous local, regional and national meetings. Many of these were early seminal works covering the science and engineering of paper, its constituent products and process of manufacture.
Since 1960, Paper Technology, which replaced the Proceedings, has been the official journal of the Technical Section / Division / Association. It is an impartial, interesting and trusted provider of information and continues to be an unbeatable source of the very information that paper professionals are keen to read about, including news, technology updates, product information, case studies, comment, and numerous technical articles. Regular features on specific topics such as tissue, energy, coating, maintenance, automation, water removal and others make sure that advertisers get their money’s worth. In addition, issues related to paper such as environmental regulation and health & safety are closely monitored.
From the beginning of 2017 the journal changed title to Paper Technology International, in order to underline the global nature of the industry and the international reach of the publication.
Paper Technology International is not a free issue journal; each of the three editions per year is delivered directly to over 1600 industry professionals who are either members or subscribers. Readers usually pass on the journal to a colleague, which increases circulation. Decision makers representing government, manufacturing, processing, converting, trade associations, consulting, research and others read Paper Technology International.
