Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In modern society, there is an increasing demand for selective, fast, low-cost, portable, and user-friendly detection methods for a wide range of target molecules of interest for human health, environment, and food industries.

The above-mentioned characteristics can be met by Amperometric Sensing  technology, which combines innovations in material science (i.e., micro- and nano-structures) with electrochemical and analytical methods that are rapidly evolving.

Concomitantly with the development of novel electrode materials, the optimization of the sensing system has become more complex, requiring competences in several qualified fields spanning from chemistry, biology, physics, and molecular biology, to nanotechnology, micro-fabrication, and electronic engineering. Although much research has been carried out so far in this area, many technological aspects remain to be optimized and represent open challenges for the scientific community. In particular, recent efforts are aimed at fulfilling the request of miniaturized, wearable, and disposable devices.

This Special Issue invites original research papers and review articles aiming to discuss the key points of the development and use of amperometric sensing systems by pointing out both the merits and limits they present.

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.
