Smart Textiles and Wearables

Monthly newsletter (12 month subscription)

At the interface of soft materials and electronics

The convergence of advanced fabrics and electronics has come a long way since the first issue of Smart Textiles and Nanotechnology was launched at the end of 2006 – coincidentally just before the launch of the iPhone, which made many developments of the time instantly superfluous.

In 2020, this crucial monthly publication is being renamed Smart Textiles and Wearables to better reflect all the progress that is now being made in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT), continuous miniaturisation, 3D printing and soft materials, in such fields as robotics and industrial manufacturing, healthcare and the next generation of consumer products. Now published by TMS.


ISSN 2634-4769
