Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wireless body sensor networks (WBANs) are the special kinds of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) that help the people to support the healthcare services, like medical monitoring, home appliances controlling, medical healthcare related data access, communication in emergency conditions, etc. Continuous monitoring with the help of both wearable and implantable Internet of Things (IoT) enabled devices will help in early detection of emergency conditions as well as diseases in at high risk patients. In addition, such devices also offer a wide range of healthcare services for people with different degrees of cognitive along with physical disabilities. Thus, biomedical wireless sensor networks are considered as a key technology in order to support the new applications and services development by targeting patient monitoring, especially for data collection for medical diagnosis and continuous clinical assessment.

This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality research results on wireless sensor networks for biomedical and clinical assessment. Submissions related to the following topics, but not limited to the novel designs, analyses, simulations and testbed experiments of authentication, access control and intrusion detection protocols, security and privacy issues in WBANs, blockchain-based security solutions for biomedical wireless sensor networks, Quality of Service (QoS)-based management, and AI-based solutions in WBANs, are welcome. Survey articles and original research articles are equally welcome.

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.
