    Aims and Scope


    Fibers and Polymers, the journal of the Korean Fiber Society, provides you with state-of-the-art research in fiber and polymer science and technology related to developments in the textile industry.
    Bridging the gap between fiber science and polymer science, the journal's topics include fiber structure and property, dyeing and finishing, textile processing, and apparel science.


    Ranks 8 out of 23 in the ISI category Materials Science, Textiles with an Impact Factor of 1.022.

    The international bimonthly journal Fibers and Polymers publishes original research results in the fields of fiber and polymer science & engineering. Founded in the beginning of a new millennium, Fibers and Polymers starts with international readership and authorship, combining into one journal such closely related themes as fiber and polymer technologies. 
    Fibers and Polymers is unique because it covers interdisciplinary areas related to fibers, polymers, textiles, apparels, colorants, fiber composites, and polymer processing.


    • Chemistry of Fiber Materials, Polymer Reactions and Synthesis
    • Physical Properties of Fibers, Polymer Blends and Composites
    • Fiber Spinning and Textile Processing, Polymer Physics, Morphology
    • Colorants and Dyeing, Polymer Analysis and Characterization
    • Chemical Aftertreatment of Textiles, Polymer Processing and Rheology

Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
