PAPTAC is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of J-FOR+, an enhanced edition of J-FOR, that will include industry news, editorials, special interviews and market information, as well peer-reviewed papers that will focus specifically on mill technology, applications and optimization. J-FOR+ will also count on the collaboration of Paper Advance to publish up-to-date industry news and information.

We are very proud of this new initiative. J-FOR has continued to increase its readership and visibility in Canada and internationally as a highly respected peer-reviewed journal serving the forest products industry. J-FOR+ becomes the natural progression to increase its role and presence in the mills and establish itself as the flagship publication of PAPTAC. - Greg Hay, PAPTAC Director

J-FOR+ will be printed and published twice a year and will be distributed to all mills in Canada as well as internationally through PAPTAC's international partners and J-FOR's worldwide subscribers.

The inaugural issue of J-FOR+ is scheduled to be published in November.
