    The aim of the journal Electrospinning is to bring together research on the various aspects of electrospinning of micro or nano scale fibers, including electrospinning process and modeling, electrospun materials and characterization as well as their diverse applications. Electrospinning and related techniques for producing fibers and nanostructures is covered by this journal.

    Aims and Scope

    Why submit 

    As the first journal dedicated solely to electrospinning and electrospun materials, it positions itself as a hub for the most important and recent advances in the field. It  also contains authoritative reviews and opinions from experts in the subject, covering the past, present and future of electrospinning and electrospun materials. The Open Access model allows ready access to its target audience and the peer-review system, together with the outstanding scientists of the Editorial Team and Editorial Advisory Board, ensures that quality is maintained throughout. The journal is a forum for scientists carrying out research and/or interested in electrospinning and electrospun materials. The journal brings together research on the various aspects of electrospinning of micro or nano scale fibers, including electrospinning process and modeling, electrospun materials and characterization as well as their diverse applications.

    This is the only journal dedicated solely to electrospinning and electrospun materials, and has a policy of quality over quantity, through the publication of high quality and original articles, which is maintained by the many prominent scholars on its Editorial Team and Editorial Advisory Board. It presently has no publication fees, and will always be Open Access for readers. Manuscripts submitted to Electrospinning are subjected to a fast, fair and constructive peer review provided by the leading experts in these fields. In the first two years there will be no article processing charges. Accepted papers are immediately published on an ongoing basis.

    Our contributors are asked to make sure their submissions comply with rules governing the formatting. Although the journal can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to deliver a properly formatted electronic version of the article.

    We accept submission of text, tables and figures as separate files or as a composite file. For your initial submission, we recommend you upload your entire manuscript, including tables and figures, as a single PDF file. If you are invited to submit a revised manuscript, please provide us with individual files: an editable text and publication-quality figures.

    • Text files can be submitted in the following formats: MS Word - standard DOCUMENT (.DOC) or RICH TEXT FORMAT (.RTF); PDF (not applicable for re-submitted or accepted manuscripts, see below)
    • Tables should be submitted as MS Word or PDF (not applicable for re-submitted or accepted manuscripts, see below). Please note that a straight Excel file is not an acceptable format
    • Graphics files can be submitted in any of the following graphic formats: EPS; BMP; JPG; TIFF; GIF or PDF. Please note that Powerpoint files are not accepted

    Any articles that have been prepared in LaTeX will be accepted for review, but only in PDF format. Post acceptance, text files of the revised manuscript and tables are required for use in the production. Authors are encouraged to use De Gruyter Open LaTeX template file.

    Authors should clearly indicate location of tables and figures in the text if these elements are given separately or at the end of the manuscript. If this information is not provided to the editorial office, we will assume that they should be left at the end of the text.

    It is important that authors include a cover letter with their manuscript. Please explain why you consider your manuscript as suitable for publication in Electrospinning, why will your paper inspire the other members of your field, and how will it drive research forward.

    The letter should contain all important details such as:

    • your full name (submitted by)
    • full title of article and short title
    • full list of authors with affiliations
    • e-mail of the corresponding author
    • contact address, telephone/fax numbers of the corresponding author
    • number of attached files, if there is more than one
    • status: new, reviewed or accepted (with reference ID if reviewed or accepted)

    Cover letter should explicitly state that the manuscript (or one with substantially the same content, by any of the authors) has not been previously published in any language anywhere and that it is not under simultaneous consideration or in press by another journal. If related work has been submitted, then we may require a preprint to be made available. Reviewers will be asked to comment on the overlap between the related submissions.

    Manuscripts that have been previously rejected, or withdrawn after being returned for modification, may be resubmitted if the major criticisms have been addressed. The cover letter must state that the manuscript is a resubmission, and the former manuscript number should be provided.
    To ensure fair and objective decision-making, authors must declare any associations that pose a conflict of interest in connection with evaluated manuscripts (see Editorial Policy for details). Authors may suggest up to two referees not to use and in such cases additional justification should be provided in the cover letter. Authors are encouraged to recommend up to five reviewers who are not members of their institution(s) and have never been associated with them or their laboratory(ies); please provide contact information for suggested reviewers. The Editors reserve the right to select expert reviewers at their discretion. For further instructions, please carefully follow the guidelines described in Instructions for Authors.
