Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Microbial-fuel-cell-based biosensors offer a unique combination of benefits that makes them an attractive technology for various applications. Firstly, they have high sensitivity, allowing them to detect low concentrations of target substances in a sample. Secondly, they have low costs of operation due to the use of renewable energy sources and the ability to use inexpensive materials. Finally, they have a low environmental impact, as they do not require harmful chemicals or generate waste products. These advantages make microbial-fuel-cell-based biosensors a promising technology for environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics, and food safety analyses. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to present cutting-edge fundamental and applied research activities in microbial-fuel-cell-based biosensing, showcasing innovative technologies, methods, and novel integrated devices for next-generation environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics, and food safety analyses. We invite submissions that will help advance research in the field of microbial-fuel-cell-based biosensing technologies.

With best regards,

Dr. Zhiheng Xu

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.
