Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wearable electronics have started to gain momentum because of their essential role in improving the quality of life for various patients and healthy individuals. The function and performance of integrated NEMS/MEMS systems depend on the design of nano-/microsystems, choice of materials, manufacturing approaches, packaging, and device integration methods. It is also of high interest to investigate the interrelationships between material properties and processing, device/system structure, and the mechanical, electrical, optical, or (bio)chemical behavior of devices/systems. Resonant sensors are a type of sensor that relies on the measurement of resonant frequency to detect a variety of physical parameters such as pressure, temperatures, viscosity, gas concentrations, accelerations, etc. This type of sensor has drawn a significant amount of attention due to its excellent stability, resolution, and accuracy. In addition, this type of sensor allows devices to be easily connected to digital systems, which is required for its effective employment as a measurement device.

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 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 2200 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.
