Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The designing of responsive materials through physical and/or chemical indices has been a recent focus of sensor science and technology. The subject of responsive material design is a newly emerging supra-disciplinary field with many commercial possibilities. Smart materials are capable of responding via both significant changes in their properties and minor changes in the environment. Responsive materials are becoming widespread. Researchers seek to acquire knowledge about the chemistry and mechanism of triggers and/or switchable sensing, which induce conformational changes in materials structures. Researchers are also seeking to devise methods of controlling these materials and their changes so as to apply them. New switchable sensors are being formulated that can specifically sense targets and regulate in a like mode. State-of-the-art smart materials enable the fabrication of a range of on/off-switchable sensors.

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 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.
