Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electromagnetic sensors for biomedical applications are receiving increasing attention both in scientific and industrial communities. Substituting existing bulky and expensive instrumentation with smart sensors having a reduced size and lower cost such as micro total analysis systems (µTAS), lab-on-a-chip, or wearable devices is a challenge from the perspective of telemedicine, point of care analyses, and personalized pharmacological treatment.

In this Special Issue, a wide range of topics are covered, including, but are not limited, to:

  • Modeling, characterization and fabrication of electromagnetic biosensors;
  • Electrical impedance spectroscopy;
  • Electrical impedance tomography (EIT);
  • Magnetic induction tomography (MIT);
  • µTAS;
  • Lab-on-a-chip devices;
  • Electromagnetic sensors for blood analysis;
  • Sensors and methods for cells and living tissue electromagnetic characterization;
  • Electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG);
  • Hardware and biosignal processing for electrocardiography (ECG);
  • Sensors and biosignal processing for stress detection;
  • Wearable and flexible sensors;
  • Sensors for well-being in ageing populations (ambient assisted living).

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
