Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is a molecule-specific spectroscopic technique that gains sensitivity by plasmon-enhanced excitation and scattering. Owing to the narrow spectral width of Raman peaks, SERS allows simultaneous detection and identification of multiple target analytes. These merits make SERS a very promising technique for studying complex biological systems. SERS-based biosensors have been developed for a wide range of applications in biomedical research, clinical diagnostics, and environmental monitoring. The progress of SERS-based biosensors has been driven by several factors, including advances in the fabrication of highly roughened metallic surfaces, the development of portable SERS instrumentation, and the integration of SERS with innovative technologies for efficient sample handling and processing. Additionally, the integration of machine learning with SERS-based biosensors has shown promising results in improving the accuracy and speed of detection, as well as enabling the identification of complex samples with high specificity.
This special issue on SERS-based biosensing will cover the recent advancements in SERS-based biosensors, their applications in various fields, and the integration of machine learning with SERS for improving the detection accuracy and speed. It will also include research on the fabrication of highly roughened metallic surfaces, the development of portable SERS instrumentation, and the integration of SERS with innovative technologies for efficient sample handling and processing. The aim of this issue is to provide insights into the current state of the art in SERS-based biosensing and to highlight the potential for future developments in this field.

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 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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
