SAGE Publishing launches the Journal of Textiles and Fibrous Materials
London, UK. SAGE Publishing today announces that it is to begin publishing the Journal of Textiles and Fibrous Materials, a new open access (OA) journal exploring fibrous structures and fiber based materials.
Covering the entire lifecycle of textiles and fibrous materials, including clothing, paper and foams, the journal provides a space to publish, provide visibility to, and widen research in the areas of textiles, clothing and a wide range of fiber based structures. The journal will cover the following aspects: chemistry, engineering and design, management, logistic recycling and teaching.
Editor-in-Chief, Yordan Kyosev, remarked:
“The Journal of Textile and Fibrous Materials will provide a much needed space where cutting-edge research covering the entire lifespan of textiles and fibrous materials can be accessed and shared by practitioners and researchers globally. I look forward to working with SAGE to establish this new OA journal as a vital site for the exchange of new thought and ideas in this area.”
David Ross, Executive Director, Open Access, SAGE Publishing commented:
“The Journal of Textiles and Fibrous Materials complements SAGE’s existing textiles journals, Textile Research Journal and Journal of Industrial Textiles. We are delighted to support the continued growth of the textiles field with the launch of this new OA title and look forward to working together with the editorial board to disseminate its research to a global audience.”
