The year 2023 marks the 10th year of the journal Fibers, and we invite you to join us in celebrating its anniversary. To this end, the journal will publish an anniversary Special Issue, “Fibers 10th Anniversary: Past, Present, and Future”. We invite you to submit an original article reflecting your latest work related to fiber research. We also welcome reviews of past and current research, and future perspectives. Editors, authors, and reviewers who have made contributions to Fibers are particularly invited to contribute. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: fiber and fiber-based materials’ properties, the design of fibrous materials, biocompatibility, toxicology and environmental safety, and the processing of fibers and any aspect of fibrous materials.
Fibers released its inaugural issue in 2013, with the founding Editor-in-Chief Prof. Dr. Stephen C. Bondy. Fibers was indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index, Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics) and Scopus, Elsevier in 2015 and 2017, respectively, and received its first CiteScore of 2.5 in 2018. In the same year, we welcomed our new Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Dr. Martin J. D. Clift. By the end of 2022, Fibers published more than 600 high-quality original articles, which is reflected in its current CiteScore rising to 6.5 (Q1 in Civil and Structural Engineering). The journal has more than 100 Editorial Board Members and over 1300 reviewers.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Fibers is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Title: Novel Design and Validation Test of a Rollable CFRP Blade for UAM
Authors: JAEYOUNG Kang

Abstract: UAM must have large wings or propellers to generate lift, which causes constrained ground operation. In order to solve the spatial inefficiency of blades, we present a novel design concept called the rollable blade that can be rolled and unfolded. For this, CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) deployable boom is theoretically designed and manufactured, and takes a role of support beam structure in the rollable blade system. Second, the length of transient region during deployment is theoretically estimated for the design of the inner support frame to maintain the stiffness of the blade system in the transient region. Finally, the rollable blade system in the combination of 3 bi-stable CFRP support beam, CFRP skin with NACA0018 airfoil and internal support frame is designed and manufactured. The repeated deployment cycle test was conducted over 100 times for the validation of the proposed rollable wing.
