We are launching a Special Issue of the journal, Materials, that is entitled “Organic Transistors”. This issue will cover all experimental and theoretical aspects concerning organic transistors and their applications. Organic transistors are paving the way for a number of applications, such as smart tags, intelligent textiles, intelligent ticketing, diagnosis systems for biosensing, and biomedical applications. Some of these products require the development of high-volume deposition and patterning techniques, such as printing. These requirements have generated a lot of interest in developing suitable materials. Moreover, these manufacturing technologies have high process variability and low yield. Circuits have to be designed to tolerate device variations and the instability found in these manufacturing technologies.
This Special Issue aims to encourage and publish research concerning the challenges and opportunities associated with developing high-throughput, low-cost manufacturing methods for organic electronics. The topics listed below indicate the range of work that is relevant to the Special Issue:
• Materials, interfaces, and architectures.
• Large-area and/or high-volume deposition and patterning techniques.
• Device characterization and applications.
• Process variability, reliability, and yield.
• Circuit design methodologies and tools.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
