Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The advent of bioelectronics and wearable devices is rapidly changing the practice of human healthcare. For instance, bioelectronic sensors can measure vital signs such as the heartbeat and respiration to provide real-time access to life-saving information and analyze metabolites in sweat to assess the level of stress during training. As the world marches into the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G wireless, medical devices that are connected could be used to monitor, track, and record individual vital signs and treatment processes on the human body, and then exchanging these clinical data to provide a personalized healthcare schema. Furthermore, the stability of bioelectronics’ power source to maintain its operation is critical; therefore, the expansion of the field of bioelectronics is still limited by the lack of stable and biocompatible power sources with aesthetic designs. Accordingly, this Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers, short communications, and review articles that focus on novel bioelectronics and wearable device developments in collecting physiological signals that can be leveraged to assess health status and diagnose diseases and assess energy harvesting and storage technologies for powering such devices during physical activity and harsh environmental conditions.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.

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 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. Micromachines 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 2600 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.
