Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanomaterials contain components (e.g., clusters or surface features) with size between 1 nanometer and 100 nanometers. Nanomaterials may be prepared via top-down approaches or via bottom-up approaches; these materials have potential use in biosensors and other biomedical devices. Top-down manufacturing methods involve preparing nanomaterials through external control over shaping or patterning. Bottom-up manufacturing methods involve self-assembly of nanoscale constituents into larger assemblies. Recent advances involving the use of nanomaterials for biosensors and other biomedical devices have arisen due to two forces. First, there is a focus on nanomaterials since novel processing, characterization, and modeling methods have become available. Second, nanomaterials provide unique capabilities for interactions with small-scale biomedical structures such as nucleic acids and viruses. Nanomaterials may also integrate multiple functions in a single medical device, increase medical device stability, and decrease medical device cost. The Special Issue will consider recent advances in nanomaterials for biosensors and other biomedical devices.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
