- New Open Access Journal
The Journal of Textiles and Fibrous Materials is a new peer-reviewed, open access journal which aims to promote rapid and wide dissemination of research in the areas of textiles, clothing, and all kinds of fiber based structures.  The journal accepts original research and review articles, which present research in fundamental and applied areas.  All submitted manuscripts considered suitable for the Journal of Textiles and Fibrous Materials are subjected to a rigorous peer review process in order to ensure that all published articles are of the highest quality.  Please follow the link provided for full details about this new journal.

- Special Issue of “Fibers” Planned:  The issue will comprise papers concerning the “Wettability of Fibers” and will be under the supervision of Guest Editor, Dr. David Seveno, Associate Professor, KU Leuven, Belgium.  Follow this link for details:  http://www.mdpi.com/journal/fibers/special_issues/wettability_fibers

- A reminder:  The Fiber Society is now included in ASTM Committee D 13 on Textiles “Related Links” list [https://www.astm.org/COMMIT/RELATED/D13.htm]  ASTM Committee D13 was formed in 1914 and currently comprises 561 members.  The group has jurisdiction over 364 standards, which are published in the “Annual Book of ASTM Standards,” Volumes 7.01 and 7.02.
