Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The development of biosensors with high sensitivity and high selectivity remains of paramount importance in diverse fields such as molecular biology, healthcare and food technology. Multidisciplinary research on nanotechnology has provided ultrasensitive nanobiosensors with a higher degree of miniaturization. In this sense, self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are relevant biorecognition layers for molecular identification. However, it has been necessary to wait for the advent of nanotechnology tools, which have allowed the exploration of in-situ biologically relevant systems for shedding light on the nature of intermolecular interactions.
This Special Issue aims to gather the community and highlight the relevance of micro and nanodevices in the sensing field. We invite manuscripts for this forthcoming Special Issue on all aspects pertinent to nanosensors for biomedical applications, such as development, testing, and modeling of any kind of micro and nanosensors, advances in fabrication, etc.
We look forward to and welcome your participation in this Special Issue. Both experimental and theoretical contributions are welcome. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following research areas:
- Biosensing and environmental analysis;
- Molecular force sensing;
- Nanomechanical sensing;
- Optomechanical sensing;
- Surface plasmon resonance sensors;
- Fabrication of novel nanosensors platforms;
- New micro and nanosensing schemes.

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.
