The "Journal of the Japan Society of Colour Material (Shikizai Kyokai-shi)", issued monthly under the responsibility of the Editorial Committee, carries research papers, reviews, lecture notes, abstracts from domestic and overseas publications and information on various activities of related societies. The research papers are published in Japanese and English, the former papers being accompanied by synopses in English to assist international communication. Introductory serialized lecture notes are also carried in the Journal for the purpose of education in the field of colour material science and technology.
Special articles are published every year on topics of current interest, such as Physical Properties of Colour Materials, Composite Techniques for Colour Materials, Functions of Colour Materials and Analyses and Testing of Colour Materials.
The Society also edits books and dictionaries on colour materials and their characterization.
