Journal of Sensors

About this Journal

Aims and scope

Journal of Sensors publishes papers related to all aspects of sensors, from their theory and design, to the applications of complete sensing devices. All classes of sensor are covered, including acoustic, biological, chemical, electronic, electromagnetic (including optical), mechanical, proximity, and thermal. Submissions relating to wearable, implantable, and remote sensing devices are encouraged.

Envisaged applications include, but are not limited to:

  •     Medical, healthcare, and lifestyle monitoring
  •     Environmental and atmospheric monitoring
  •     Sensing for engineering, manufacturing and processing industries
  •     Transportation, navigation, and geolocation
  •     Vision, perception, and sensing for robots and UAVs

The journal welcomes articles that, as well as the sensor technology itself, consider the practical aspects of modern sensor implementation, such as networking, communications, signal processing, and data management.

As well as original research, Journal of Sensors also publishes focused review articles that examine the state of the art, identify emerging trends, and suggest future directions for developing fields.
