Sustainability and Innovation in the Fashion Field - call for paper

 May you be interested in contributing in the area of 'Sustainability and Innovation in the Fashion Field' please consider this call forwarded by The Nordic Textile Journal for their 2012 issue.

 The Nordic Textile Journal brings together interesting results of research in design, textile- and design management, technology and craft. The journal is issued once a year by the Centre for Textile Research, CTF, at the Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås. The Nordic Textile Journal welcomes research based articles which may be of a scientific or artistic character and report novel achievements or directions in research, exhibition techniques, artistic communications etc. We also welcome articles based on research related reports from conferences, interviews, reviews of books, news and upcoming events. An academic committee reviews the articles in a semi-blind reviewing process to ensure a good academic standard.

The 2012 issue will focus on Sustainability and Innovation in the Fashion Field. A theme which is an important part in one of the two strong R&D programs at the Swedish School of Textiles, F:3 (Fashion, Function, Futures). This program aims to develop new knowledge on the constituents of the textile value chain and the special characteristics of the fashion industry with an important focus on sustainability.
