Propellants Explosives Pyrotechnics

(ISSN 1521-4087)


Aims and Scope

Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics (PEP) is an international, peer-reviewed journal containing Full Papers, Short Communications, critical Reviews, as well as details of forthcoming meetings and book reviews concerned with the research, development and production in relation to propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics for all applications. Being the official journal of the International Pyrotechnics Society, PEP is a vital medium and the state-of-the-art forum for the exchange of science and technology in energetic materials. PEP is published 12 times a year.

PEP is devoted to advancing the science, technology and engineering elements in the storage and manipulation of chemical energy, specifically in propellants, explosives and pyrotechnics. Articles should provide scientific context, articulate impact, and be generally applicable to the energetic materials and wider scientific community. PEP is not a defense journal and does not feature the weaponization of materials and related systems or include information that would aid in the development or utilization of improvised explosive systems, e.g., synthesis routes to terrorist explosives.

Features and Coverage

Articles published in PEP should be of scientific value to the field and contribute to the present understanding in the areas of:

• Propellants

• Explosives

• Pyrotechnics

• Energetic materials

• Related nanomaterials

• Considered aspects include: ignition, combustion, detonation, synthesis, formulation, analysis, detection, characterization, ballistics, application and demilitarizationPEP publishes Short Communications, Full Papers and Reviews.

PEP is the official journal of the International Pyrotechnics Society and keeps the readers up to date with meeting notifications.
