Special Issue "Smart Biosensors for Healthcare Applications and Environmental Monitoring"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 9843
Smart biosensors are playing pivotal roles in disease management, such as screening, diagnostics, and the monitoring of disease progression (including drug delivery). These miniaturized sensors are also being utilized for the environmental monitoring of various pollutants and contaminants in the Earth’s atmosphere. Various smart nanomaterial-based devices, along with lab on chip and nanoengineered sensors are being developed for the detection and tracking of biomarkers in humans and the environment. This Special Issue, entitled “Smart Biosensors for Healthcare Applications and Environmental Monitoring”, will feature the discoveries and innovative approaches presented in the field of biosensors to promote a healthy environment with sustainable human society. To explore the aspects of personalized healthcare and monitoring environmental pollution, we will investigate smart sensors for detecting biomarkers related to diseases (cancer, viruses, bacteria, etc.) and environmental pollutants (water, air, soil). The topics covered in this Special Issue will be as follows:
- Smart nanomaterial-based sensors for disease biomarkers
- Point of care sensors
- Miniaturized sensors for environmental monitoring (humidity sensors, soil sensors, etc.)
- Microfluidic-based sensors for disease management
- Nanosensors for drug delivery
We will accept contributions in the form of original research (communications, letters, and full length) and critical reviews (reviews and mini reviews).

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.
