Editorial: TAPPI Journal reinstates the “Technical Brief” sh
ABSTRACT: For many years, TAPPI Journal (TJ) accepted submissions of “Technical Briefs” (also known as Technical Notes or Brief Notes) in addition to the full-length papers peer-reviewed papers that you have typically seen in more recent years. The TJ Editorial Board is once again accepting these short-form papers, as readers may have noticed in the last issue with publication of Tom Lindstrom’s short nanocellulose re-view (TAPPI Journal 18[5]: 308[2019]). Another Technical Brief appears on p. 391 of the current issue.
