Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The persistent quest of progress has caused umerous unfavorable side effects on daily life, and mankind has placed a strong emphasis on well-being in order to address the challenges that are related to them.

The broad concept of human well-being, which also encompasses material well-being, includes personal safety.

When integrated into our lives, new-generation sensors are expected to guarantee a high level of quality improvement.

Even though they are very old ideas, plasmonics- and surface-plasmon-resonance-based sensors have grown in popularity in the past 10 years due to the flourishing interest in nanooptics. They could therefore be very significant in this context, with applications in human health, environmental protection, and pollution management, as well as the capacity to foresee emergencies (such as a water scarcity) or catastrophic events (such as hurricanes and avalanches). 

The objective of this Special Issue, entitled “Surface Plasmon Resonance Sensors: the impact on human well-being”, is to display the state of the art as well as the perspectives of this class of sensors, with special attention being paid to new designs and sensor concepts that can contribute to the betterment of society.

We hope to attract the attention of scientists engaged in this multidisciplinary field and display the actual scenario while prospecting new research routes.

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. Chemosensors 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 2000 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.
