About the book

Fiber material is a representative sustainable polymer material, widely used for clothing apparel and industrial purposes. Among such materials, natural fiber is known as a polymer material for clothing and textile manufacturing, leading a new era by grafting connected technology that includes everything from the primary function to the advanced and hybrid functions by convergence of the artificial intelligence (AI) through functional specialization. In particular, it is playing a role as a leading material on the new horizon of the ICT convergence smart technology by being connected to the emotional engineering and IT technology.

This book aims to introduce natural fibers by classifying them into industrial streams: Up-Stream (Molecular Design), Middle-Stream (Manufacturing Method), and Down-Stream (Products and Uses). The book will also explore the possibility of creating new application target of smart, advanced, and hybrid materials, as well as the divergence effects based on the connected technology.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Sara Gojević-Zrnić

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
