Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of highly-sensitive miniaturized sensors that allow the real-time quantification of analytes is highly desirable in medical diagnostics, veterinary testing, food safety, and environmental monitoring. Over the last three decades, surface plasmon resonance (SPR) has been considered a key technology for numerous sensing applications. SPR sensors are powerful and effective tools that have been widely used in biosensing, bioimaging, chemical detection, water testing, aqueous sample detection, food safety, environment monitoring, biological analyte detection and gas detection. SPR-based sensors have received extreme interest as they offer high sensitivity and better detection accuracy of unknown analytes. At present, avoiding false-positive responses is another important issue. Due to their highly sensitive responsiveness, plasmonic-sensor-based multi-analyte detection is another important direction which can significantly reduce false-positive responses and accelerate the detection process.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2200 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.
