About Chemosensors


Chemosensors (ISSN 2227-9040) provides an advanced forum for the science and technology of chemical sensors. It publishes reviews, regular research papers and communications. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. All aspects of chemosensing are welcomed from theoretical concepts to education and training. We also welcome manuscripts on classic chemical sensing – be it wet chemistry or biological sensing using enzymes or cells and other model organisms. Drug testing and medical/diagnostic testing are also included under this umbrella. We welcome results of field testing or assay validation as well, whether it be at the research level or from commercial pretesting. We also ask for perspectives from people working in the field or editorials that concern prominent issues related to chemosensing. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. There are, in addition, several unique features of this journal:

  • Manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas will be particularly welcomed.
  • Electronic files and software regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material.
  • We also accept manuscripts communicating to a broader audience with regard to research projects financed with public funds.

MDPI Publication Ethics Statement

Chemosensors is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). MDPI takes the responsibility to enforce a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies and standards to ensure to add high quality scientific works to the field of scholarly publication. Unfortunately, cases of plagiarism, data falsification, inappropriate authorship credit, and the like, do arise. MDPI takes such publishing ethics issues very seriously and our editors are trained to proceed in such cases with a zero tolerance policy. To verify the originality of content submitted to our journals, we use iThenticate to check submissions against previous publications. MDPI works with Publons to provide reviewers with credit for their work.
