Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biological and chemical sensing are rapidly growing, strongly interdisciplinary fields of science and technology. At the corporate side, the medical industry is the main factor however environment, food safety, air-quality, defense, etc are also important elements. The nature of research includes physics, biophysics, chemistry, biochemistry, physical chemistry, electrochemistry, electronics and computer science. A particularly fast growing field is sensor networks. There the information is collected from the single sensors in the network and using proper models for interpretation synergistically enhances the information content and the reliability. The network can be a specific array of sensors with enhanced processing of the collective information. The network can also be a large network of stand-alone sensors that communicate with not only the base but also with each other.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
