In vivo physiologic monitoring is used to monitor vital physiological parameters for clinicians, healthcare professionals, and even personal users, to be informed of changes in pathophysiological state. Additionally, in vivo physiological monitoring is important for many medical and biomedical applications related to mobile health (mHealth). One of the crucial challenges in this type of application is the interactions of sensors with sophisticated electronics, effective executive software, the human body, and associated effective circuits to deliver multi-functionalities and high performance in vivo physiological monitoring, even in a real-time. With the advances in mHealth, we need to develop robust and reliable physiologic monitoring technologies that can provide an earlier indication of pathophysiological alterations, which could prompt earlier, targeted and personalized healthcare. Biosensors is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that focuses on basic science and technological innovations that support the development of biosensors. This Special Issue on “In Vivo Physiological Monitoring” will focus on publishing original research, reviews and perspectives on measurements with biosensors to reveal human physiological variations from routine to physical activities.

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 1000 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.
