Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to publish both review and original research articles related to portable sensors applications in environmental monitoring. The Special Issue is open to contributions on air, water, and soil monitoring using handheld, smartphone-enabled, drone or robot-mounted strategies. The underlining technologies and targets can be physical, chemical or biological in nature. The device or system is preferred to be self-contained without the need for external electrical power, pumps or equipment. A completely autonomous self-powered device or system is recommended for consideration. Examples of applications are turbidity sensors, airborne particles counters, environmental hormone sensors, heavy metals sensors, genomic sensors, airborne and waterborne bacterial and viral sensors, and radiation sensors.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.
