Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Over the past decade, we have seen considerable developments in smart wearable devices and technology. The proliferation of devices—from fitness trackers and healthcare monitors to smart watches and mobile computing—has been fuelled by a combination of advances in underpinning technology and consumer demand/acceptance. However, despite its growing maturity, there remain numerous challenges in a broad range of areas that require research effort in order to further the technology.
To highlight some of the latest developments in this exciting and relevant field, we invite you to consider submitting a manuscript to our upcoming Special Issue “Wearable Smart Devices”. Both research papers and review articles will be considered. We welcome submissions spanning topics across sensor devices, wearable technologies, and embedded intelligence for smart wearable devices.Dr. Geoff Merrett

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.
