Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics (PEP) is the official journal of our Society. PEP is published by Wiley-VCH and appears bimonthly as both print and online editions. Click here to see the flyer.

Please be sure to see Dr. Ruth M. Doherty’s recent editorial describing the origins and history of the journal, “A Special Issue of PEP for a Special Occasion: 40 Years of Leadership in the Science of Propellants, Explosives and Pyrotechnics.”

Below you’ll find some general information about the journal. It is an excellent resource, containing the latest high quality research in energetic materials. Many of our Society’s members publish their research here.
