About Chemosensors


Chemosensors (ISSN 2227-9040) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that provides an advanced forum for the science and technology of chemical sensors and the related analytical methods and systems. For experimental manuscripts, the full experimental details must be provided so that results can be reproduced. There are, in addition, several unique features of this journal:

  • Manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas are 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 on research projects financed with public funds.
