Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

In 2020, we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the journal Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220). Since 2001, when the inaugural issue of Sensors was launched, we have already published more than 25,000 papers from more than 85,000 authors. More than 32,000 reviewers have submitted at least one review report. Our sincerest thanks go to our readers, innumerable authors, anonymous peer reviewers, editors, and all the people working in some way for the journal who have joined their efforts for years. These highlights would not have occurred without your participation.

To mark this significant milestone, a Special Issue entitled “Sensors: 20th Anniversary” is being launched. This Special Issue includes high-quality papers under the broad scope of Sensors. We would like to invite you to contribute an original research paper or a comprehensive review article on a trendy or hot topic for peer-review and possible publication.

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 2000 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.

Published Papers

This special issue is now open for submission, see below for planned papers.

Planned Papers

The below list represents only planned manuscripts. Some of these manuscripts have not been received by the Editorial Office yet. Papers submitted to MDPI journals are subject to peer-review.

1)Title: Active and Passive IR/EO Sensors for Food Crops Quality and Health Assessment
Author: Roberto Sabatini, Alex Gardi

This paper provides a critical review of IR/EO sensors used in precision agriculture, focusing on key factors such as the measurement techniques, performance analysis and platform integration schemes used in precision agriculture, towards highlighting the main benefits and limitation of each technique in different operational and environmental conditions. The non-destructive, non-invasive measurements obtained by IE/EO sensors can be performed repeatedly, and processed quickly, providing more objectivity in disease identification and quantification. When applying EO/IR sensors in combination with Artificial Intelligence (AI) based data fusion techniques, they offer new avenues to predict and early-react to plant stress and disease from a variety of physical platforms, including hand-held, ground-fixed systems and air/space vehicles.

2) Title: Metal-Oxide Based Nanomaterials: Synthesis, Charaterization And Their Applications In Electrical And Electrochemical Sensors

Author: Enza Fazio*, Salvatore Spadaro, Carmelo Corsaro, Giulia Neri, Salvatore Gianluca Leonardi,
Fortunato Neri, Nehru Lavanya, Chinnathambi Sekar, Nicola Donato, Giovanni Neri

 

3) Title: FBG sensors wavelength stability at very high temperature

Author: Dan Grobnic
