The use of electrochemical (bio)sensors for the monitoring of target analytes in environmental, health, and food safety applications has attracted great interest in recent years. Electrochemical sensors based on tailored composite sensing materials as well as electrochemical biosensors containing biologic recognition elements, such as enzyme, nucleic acids, and engineered biomolecules, have been established as powerful analytical devices enabling fast, reliable, low cost, and sensitive analytical measurements. Direct measurements can be conducted onsite or in vivo, requiring no or only minor sample treatment, have ensured the rapid growth of electrochemical (bio)sensors for monitoring target emergent pollutants, inorganic and organic pollutants, endocrine disruptors, antioxidants, pharmaceutical contaminants, toxins, biohazard compounds, and biomarkers that have a profound impact on the life quality via issues related to the environment, food, and health.
This Special Issue aims to provide an updated overview of the recent developments and applications of electrochemical (bio)sensors in environmental quality, health, and food safety monitoring, including but not limited to various topics related to new detection analytical strategies, miniaturization and microfabrication of portable sensors, tailored (bio)recognition elements, in vivo detection, onsite monitoring, and remote sensing. Contributions in the form of reviews and research papers dealing with the latest developments of electrochemical (bio)sensors and their analytical applications in sensing of target analytes in environmental, biomedical, and agri-food samples are welcome.

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.
