Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the fields of health diagnosis, food and environmental monitoring, and emergency security have been the focus of extensive scientific research. With environmental pollution, the pressure of work and the pace of life, and unhealthy living habits, the incidence of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, and mental depression is proliferating year by year. As a crucial component of the human body, biomolecules are widely involved in various physiological activities of the human body and are related to a variety of diseases. Because the trace detection and analysis of biomolecules is closely related to the timely diagnosis of major diseases, food safety and environmental problems, it can be used as a reference for judgment. Therefore, the research of rapid, simple, economical, portable, and location-free sensing platforms is of great practical significance. Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) detection technology has been widely employed in biological imaging, analytical chemistry, disease diagnosis, food safety and other fields due to its ultra-high sensitivity, rapid spectral acquisition speed, real-time and on-site detection. Accordingly, this Special Issue is dedicated to collecting articles addressing significant advances in innovative research on advanced SERS biosensors for detection and analysis.

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.
