Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Flexible and stretchable sensors, which are generally of low modulus, low bending stiffness, ultrathin features, or elastic response to strain deformations, can provide intimate interfaces with biological tissues and conformal contacts with irregular/deformable surfaces, leading to significant developments toward various advanced forms of monitoring with applications in health assessment, athletic performance evaluation, environmental monitoring, etc. This Special Issue is dedicated to providing a wide coverage of research in different aspects of flexible and stretchable sensor technology from material optimization, device design, and system construction to practical applications. The scope of this Special Issue includes but is not limited to:

  • Materials for flexible/stretchable sensors;
  • Fabrication strategies of flexible/stretchable sensors;
  • New device design for high performance flexible/stretchable sensors;
  • Flexible/stretchable system design and integration;
  • Implementations of flexible/stretchable sensors/systems in different applications

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.
