A sister publication of the Journal of Industrial Hemp is the Journal of Natural Fibers, published in New York by the Haworth Press. Articles on bamboo, kenaf, flax, nettles, coir, jute, wool and, of course, hemp will be found in its pages. It is mainly edited in Poland by the Institute of Natural Fibres in Poznan, under the direction of Ryszard Kozlowski. An international editorial board works to make this a cutting edge work with peer reviewed articles on the latest technology.

A recent copy, Volume 2 # 1, 2005, ran five articles on hemp:
