Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Substantial research effort is focused on the development of reliable and durable strain sensors in wearable applications for technical as well as medical purposes. A sensor utilizes a certain physical or chemical sensing principle, which leads to an electrical signal that is measured. In the particular case of a wearable and flexible strain sensor, the formation, transmission and recording of the signal has to overcome certain limitations, such as long-term stability under corrosive environments and harsh mechanical conditions (e.g., tensile, fatigue and cycling tests). In this Special Issue, we are seeking contributions on new concepts for flexible strain sensors, sensing mechanisms, and the evaluation of their signal under applicatory conditions will be presented. New potential applications and assessments under simulated conditions will be welcome, such as case studies of flexible strain sensors in medicine and physiotherapy.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
