Addresses all aspects of the science and technology of clothing-objective measurement techniques, control of fibre and fabric, CAD systems, product testing, sewing, weaving and knitting, inspection systems, drape and finishing, etc. Academic and industrial research findings are published after a stringent review has taken place.
From labour-intensive, mechanically simplistic roots, the clothing industry is quickly becoming a high-tech, capital-intensive industry due to rapid advances in technology which contribute to high quality design, cutting, stitching and finishing techniques. The industry is one of the fastest-developing in the manufacturing sector, and it is essential that industry practitioners and researchers keep pace with the changes if they are to develop streamlined manufacturing processes and keep ahead of their competitors.
The International Journal of Clothing Science and Technology is a specialized journal for all those involved with clothing; whether in fabric, design, production, machinery, management or retailing. It is a refereed publication and is proud to enjoy the highest standard of editorial professionals, reviewers and authors. IJCST is not just a journal, it is seen as a means of putting the international community of researchers and industry in touch with one another.
