Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The research in the field of biosensors has experienced a huge increase in recent years, mainly due to the high demand for rapid and simple-to-handle solutions for medical diagnosis in the point of care. Biosensing techniques based on the plasmonic phenomenon have been known to be very promising approaches as they are highly sensitive and could reach low limits of detection.
The collaboration of scientists from different fields (biochemistry, nanoscience, materials, and electronics, among others) has been playing an important role in the development of such devices, from the synthesis of the materials, and the biofunctionalization procedures, to the data processing and analysis.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the latest advances concerning the different steps in the production of plasmonic biosensors for biomedical applications. Therefore, articles including (but not limited to) the following topics are welcome: the production of novel plasmonic nanostructures/materials with promising SPR and LSPR properties for biosensing; studies on the exploration of biofunctionalization procedures for the preparation of specific biorecognition layers; production of plasmonic biosensing devices and plasmonic data analysis; and data science to improve their sensing performance (e.g., machine learning) and integration as small and portable devices.

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.
