Special Issue Information
Nitrogen is present in the environment as a wide variety of chemical compounds, including nitrate, nitrite, nitric oxide, nitrous oxide, dinitrogen, ammonium, hydroxylamine, and organic nitrogen. The interconversion of these compounds in the environment constitutes the global biogeochemical cycle of nitrogen, which has been unbalanced by the human-driven input of N compounds in the soil, water, and atmosphere. This poses threats to human health and ecosystems on a global scale, demanding the firm control and monitoring of the most impactful N compounds, in accordance with (inter)national legislation. Moreover, the demand for the effective analysis of nitrogen oxides is also present in food quality control, biomedical research, and clinical diagnostics. However, the quantification of most N compounds is still facing several challenges.
In this Special Issue of Biosensors, we seek state-of-the-art research works focusing the development of improved biosensing tools that could take the lead in the assessment of nitrogen-based compounds. The submission of original research papers and review articles are both welcome.
Prof. Dr. Maria Gabriela Almeida
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.
