“Advanced Fiber Materials" has been included in SCIE Data Base!


Recently, the English academic journal Advanced Fiber Materials of Donghua University has been included in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), which marks significant progress after being included by another important international database, such as ESCI and CAS. The global influence of Advanced Fiber Materials is rocketing, presenting the development of the journal has stepped into a new chapter.

Proof of Inclusion

Advanced Fiber Materials was initiated by the State Key Laboratory of Fiber Material Modification (Donghua University), co-sponsored by Donghua University and the Chinese Materials Research Society. The papers published on Springer Nature include original research, review articles, forward-looking bulletins, opinions, news, and highlights. The journal has been committed to building an academic journal with international influence to meet major national needs and the development of the frontiers of fiber discipline. It aimed to create an academic exchange platform for scientific researchers, leading the development of the frontiers of fiber discipline, and served for the country's economic growth and industrial development in the way of publishing new concepts, theories, methods, ideas, technology and achievements in the fiber fields.

The journal's editor-in-chief is Professor Zhu Meifang, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Director of the State Key Laboratory of Fiber Material Modification, and Dean of the College of Materials Science and Engineering. The journal's editorial board is composed of 19 academicians at home and abroad, with 32 world-leading scientists, outstanding scholars and experts in various areas.

Since its official founding in 2019, the journal has published 16 issues, with a total of 110 articles published, and has received strong support from the editorial board, experts, scholars, authors, and readers. As of December 1, 2021, it has been downloaded more than 100,000 times and cited more than 680 times.
