Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of advanced biosensors and diagnostic agents with diversified and specific characteristics in terms of composition and functionality has been driving more and more attention over the last several years. The scope of this Special Issue covers very broad aspects from fundamental concepts of biosensing using nanomaterials; their synthesis; engineering their sensing properties based on optical, electrochemical, magnetic, acoustic, and thermal transduction; their integration with biological elements; the design of biosensing devices; the evaluation of their sensing performance; and the exploration of their broad applications from medical diagnostics, industry, environmental control, food analysis, defence, etc. The topic will specifically cover recent progress on the development of new synthetic approaches for the synthesis of these advanced nanomaterials for biosensing with different chemical compositions (metals, semiconductors, metal-oxides, polymers, graphene, DNA, enzymes, etc.), nanoscale dimensions and morphologies (particles, pores, wires, tubes, rods, etc.), and the characterization their sensing properties, focused on designing new biosensing devices with improved performances for emerging applications.

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. Journal of Functional Biomaterials 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.
