Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issues will host original papers on both, fundamental and applied research and reviews regarding the design, construction and use of instrumentation, methodologies and techniques for the detection of nuclear radiation generated by natural and artificial radionuclides or by nuclear reactions used in several application fields (energy, medicine, industry, security and safety).  The papers can be oriented also on: the design and construction of systems for innovative nuclear measurements; the measurements and instrumentation for nuclear plants; the measurements and instrumentation used in nuclear decommissioning or waste management; the applications of radioisotopes in industrial and non-industrial fields; the detection of environmental radioactivity and nuclear metrology; safety and protection from radiation (Radioprotection); the geological, archaeological and environmental dating; methods and detection techniques for radioecology; the sensing techniques and instrumentation for biomedical application; radiometric measurements including gamma and particle emissions; the development and performance of nuclear instrumentation including radiation spectrometry, dosimetry and novel counting systems.

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.
