Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue explores the exciting world of nanomaterials in developing next-generation sensors. It will showcase original research on the design, fabrication, and application of nanostructures and nanocrystals for the sensitive detection of various targets. This Special Issue welcomes contributions on topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Novel nanomaterials for sensing (quantum dots, metal nanoparticles, nanotubes, etc.);
  • Engineering nanostructures for enhanced sensitivity and selectivity;
  • Applications in light sensing, biodetection, chemical sensing, environmental monitoring, and more;
  • Integration of nanomaterials with sensor platforms;
  • Theoretical and computational studies on nanoscale sensing phenomena

This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for researchers to share cutting-edge advancements and foster collaborations in the rapidly evolving field of nanoscale sensing.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. 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 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.
