Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The fast advancement in micro- and nano-technologies are providing unprecedented opportunities for the development of Bio-MEMS (Bio-Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) and Bio-NEMS (Bio-Nano-Electro-Mechanical System) for chemical sensing. Exciting progress has been achieved due to the integration of micro/nano fabricated devices with functional sensitive nanomaterials, which introduced new features and higher performance to the chemical sensing systems, such as higher sensitivity, higher specificity, higher throughput, and lower cost. In this Special Issue, we would like to discuss the most recent developments and applications of Bio-MEMS and Bio-NEMS for chemical sensing. We would like to invite reviews and research articles related, but not limited to, the following topics: chemical sensitive cell- and molecule-based biosensors; micro/nano-structured devices for chemical sensing; electronic noses and electronic tongues; biomimetic olfactory- and taste-based biosensors; and gas sensors with micro/nano devices and nanomaterials.

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. Biosensors 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.
