The ability to sense chemical vapours is of increasing importance in a highly technological world. Sensing in environmental monitoring is particularly important as the effects of climate change become more apparent. As such there is an increasing push for more sensitive, selective and stable sensors, particularly those that can work in remote, isolated, and sometimes-harsh conditions. This Special Issue on environmental monitoring seeks to bring together industrialists and academics working in this area to publish the latest and highest impact results.
Manuscripts from all areas of environmental sensing technology are welcome, including, but not limited to:
- Optical sensors
- electrochemical sensors
- metal oxide semiconductor sensors
- carbon materials based sensors
- sensor networks
- data processing and visualisation
All aspects of environmental sensing are to be included from novel materials synthesis, sensor device preparation and processing, and chemical sensor device performance, data processing and visualisation.

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. Sensors 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 1800 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.
