Special Issue "Novel Optical Sensors for Biomedical Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
I am pleased to invite you to submit manuscripts for a Special Issue of the journal Sensors on “Novel Optical Sensors for Biomedical Applications”. The field of optical sensors has undergone rapid growth in recent years, with new concepts in miniaturization, multiplex analysis, photonic structures, and optically responsive materials appearing regularly. At the same time, the fields of genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics are providing a wealth of new molecules to detect.
This Special Issue will highlight research focused on the development and use of new optical sensors for medical diagnostics, biomedical research, and related endeavors. Papers describing new optical diagnostics methods for point-of-care, field-use, and resource-limited applications are encouraged, as are those reporting novel assays, multiplex testing systems, “lab-on-a-chip” sensors, and spectroscopic methods. Both application-focused and fundamental contributions (with likely downstream applications in biomedicine) are welcome.
Prof. Dr. Benjamin L. Miller
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.
