Sensors | 2020 Review

The year 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of Sensors. Sensors has published more than 30,000 papers from more than 100,900 authors. To celebrate this 20th anniversary, we have arranged a series of special content and events. We hope you can join us to celebrate this milestone of our journal and enjoy the collection below.

The year 2020 was a year of growth for Sensors. The journal received 17,136 submissions and published 7255 articles from 30,084 international authors. More than 49,000 experts were involved in reviewing articles for Sensors during 2020 and involved in the peer review process of the journal. Moreover, 554 academic editors joined the Editorial Board in 2020. Sensors’ articles were cited 12,703 times in 2020 and the impact factor (IF) increased from 3.031 to 3.275. Thanks to the commitment and dedication of the editorial staff, the median time between submission and publication is around 39 days.

The journal established the following six new sections: “Communications”, “Fault Diagnosis & Sensors”, “Wearables”, “Nanosensors”, “Sensing and Imaging” and “Sensors and Robotics”.

The E-conference organized by Sensors, the 7th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications (ECSA-7), has been closed successfully with 115 accepted proceedings and 6 live sessions. We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciations to all the participants for their contributions and all the chairs and committee members for their excellent work.

Moreover, Sensors became an affiliated journal of the Spanish Society of Biomedical Engineering (SEIB).
