The following technical research symposia were cosponsored by NSPI and various industry companies, including JSPSI. JSPSI compiled and edited the proceedings listed below, which are still available from the APSP:
1st Annual NSPI Technical Symposium (November of 1996 in Phoenix)
2nd Annual NSPI Technical Symposium (November of 1997 in Chicago)
3rd Annual NSPI Technical Symposium (November of 1998 in New Orleans)
4th Annual NSPI Technical Symposium (November of 1999 in Las Vegas)

The Journal of the Swimming Pool and Spa Industry is a peer-reviewed research and educational journal for those interested in sharing technical data and for those wishing to expand their knowledge of swimming pool chemistry and other aspects of aquatics, facility maintenance, and the evaluation of new products.

The JSPSI was published originally from 1995 to 2004, in hard copy and available by subscription. Those issues (Volumes 1 through 5) are now being provided here online. Also, starting later this year the Journal will resume publication as an online annual. Although still peer-reviewed and of the same high quality as before, the journal will now be available free of charge.
