Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air quality is a matter of strong interest for authorities and citizens. Bad air quality implies damage to the health of citizens, with a considerable number of deaths, inconvenience in the daily life of population, damage to the cultural heritage of cities, and other unpleasant effects.

The use of new technologies, suitable for monitoring air quality and particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere, both in the outdoor environment and in the indoor environment, pushes the development of new and sustainable technologies that are able to provide reliable information.

The aim of this Special Issue is to integrate the results of theoretical and experimental science and sensors technology for particulate matter and air pollution sensors.


  • -Sensor technologies for PM and air pollution (outdoor and indoor);
  • -Wireless PM sensors;
  • -Intelligent PM sensors;
  • -Low-cost sensor technologies;
  • -Sensor calibrations;
  • -Sensor networks;
  • -Bioaerosol sensors;
  • -Case studies for air pollution monitoring performed by sensors;
  • -Air quality management with the help of chemical sensors;
  • -Wearable chemical sensors.

Manuscript, reviews, and letters are welcome.

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.


  • Air pollution sensors
  • Indoor and outdoor PM detection
  • Intercalibration and data validation
