Nanofibers have attracted a great deal of attention over the past two decades (or longer) due to their unique physical properties, and are exploited as promising materials for a wide range of applications, including air and liquid filtration, battery separator, acoustic insulation, and biomedical applications, such as drug delivery, wound healing, tissue engineering, barrier textiles, etc. Nanofibers from a rich variety of materials, including polymers, composites, and ceramics, can be easily prepared using simple methods, such as electrospinning. Other techniques are also available for generating nanofibers, with diameters ranging from 5 to 500 nm or higher, which are 102–104 times smaller than fibers prepared using traditional processing methods. With this background, many researchers have worked toward the development of nanofibers for various applications.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the recent advancements in the fabrications and applications of these nanofibers.

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 papers will be 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. Nanomaterials 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 2000 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.
