Special Issue "Recent Advances in Organic Bioelectronics and Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 July 2015).
Prof. Dr. Emil J.W. List-Kratochvil
Recent progress in the various branches of organic electronics has prompted increasing interest in their utilization for addressing the need for lightweight, inexpensive, and field-deployable versatile bioelectronic devices, such as sensors and photo-detectors. Therefore, the field of organic bioelectronics and sensors is drawing increasing interest within the organic electronics community. In particular, the exploration of chemical, ionic, electronic, and opto-electronic attributes of organic and bio-inspired materials, and their incorporation in biomedical and sensing applications, has drawn special attention. This Special Issue will, therefore, address recent advances in this rapidly growing field. Topics include organic materials in tissue engineering, cell growth, and drug delivery; luminescent conjugated polymers in disease detection; bio-inspired systems and biomaterials in biotechnology and medical applications; organic electroactive materials in actuators; OLED-, OFET-, and hybrid organic/inorganic transistors-based (bio)chemical sensors; organic semiconductor lasers for analytical applications; organic semiconductors in image, strain, pressure, and temperature sensors; tunable multicolor OLED arrays in on-chip spectrophotometers; organic photo-detectors; and flexible/stretchable electronics for large-area sensors and actuators. Case studies, reviews, and research papers on these and related topics are invited.

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. Electronics 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 1400 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.
