Special Issue "Inkjet Production of Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 July 2019
The biosensors scenario is a continuously-growing reality that points towards the improvements to sensitivity and detection limits over the years. In the last few years, this paradigm has been changing and criteria, such as low-cost, sustainability, and device customization, are gaining more importance. Inkjet printing of electronic, electrochemical, optical devices, and sensors is a simple technology that opens the door to system personalization and dramatically reduces the concept-to-prototype time. Inkjet sensors printing permits to use affordable and peculiar substrates, such as paper, textiles, and flexible plastic sheets with both research grade and consumer printers.
The applications of inkjet-printed sensors on these substrates cover several fields, such as biomedicine, food and health, environment, and security.
In order to highlight some of the latest inkjet sensors production advances, we would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript to our upcoming Special Issue, “Inkjet Production of Sensors”, to be published by the end of autumn 2018. Under the expanded scope of the journal, the aim of this Special Issue is to gather a collection of papers dedicated to all aspects of inkjet-printed sensors and biosensors, with a particular emphasis on novel approaches to sensor design and architecture, signal transduction and novel applications.
We welcome submissions from any area of sensing. Both research papers and review articles will be considered. If you are interested in contributing to this Special Issue, we would very much appreciate receiving the tentative title of your contribution.Prof. Alessandro Paccagnella

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.
