JPVT moved from publishing four issues to six times annually. In 2002, the journal began an all-digital publication process using the ASME web tool. In 2007, ASME converted to e-First publishing, based on first in, first out (FIFO). In 2008, an online journal became available, with archived issues beginning with the February issue. By 2010, the entire publication process was completed electronically and became available in both a print and an online edition. The journal encompasses research papers, technical briefs, design innovation papers, technology reviews, and literature reviews on a wide variety of pressure vessel and piping areas of interest, which makes JPVT unique.
