Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The rapid development of industry has caused serious water pollution, resulting in water safety issues becoming increasingly prominent. In the context of carbon neutrality, water quality monitoring as well as water pollution management have put forward higher requirements, and the demand for high-tech-based water quality measurement means is increasingly refined. However, the continuous emergence of new pollutants and their unpredictability in the environment brings new challenges to water quality early warning. The development of rapid and stable water quality measurement technology is the key to solving this problem. Microbial electrochemical-based biosensors have become a hot research topic because of their real-time online. Therefore, we cordially invite you to submit your work results and contributions on the latest research progress of microbial electrochemical-based biosensors to this Special Issue to better ensure water quality safety. Potential contributions can include, but are not limited to:

  1. Microbial fuel cell biosensors.
  2. Microbial electrolytic cell biosensors.
  3. Key factors and monitoring strategies for bioelectrochemical sensors.
  4. Field observations of bioelectrochemical sensor measurement processes.
  5. Modeling and prediction of bioelectrochemical sensors for actual water sample determination.

Submission of studies on the commercialization of developed microbial electrochemical biosensors is strongly encouraged.

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.
