Advanced Sensor Research is an international open access journal for high-quality research encompassing all aspects of sensing. The journal publishes original research, review-type, and perspective articles across various research fields including materials science, chemistry, physics, engineering, optics, healthcare, and life science.
The journal's scope covers the following key areas:
- Biosensors: sensors that contain or detect biologically relevant elements; e.g., antibodies, peptides, nucleic acids, metabolites, hormones, cells, tissues
- Chemical sensors: ions, small molecules, pH, electronic tongues, etc.
- Gas sensors: including humidity, volatile organic compounds, ozone, electronic noses for food safety, etc.
- Physical sensors: such as temperature, pressure, strain, mass, motion, electric and magnetic fields, particulate, proximity
- Optical sensors: IR, UV, visible, X-ray
- Sensors based on all types of sensing principles, including (but not limited to) electrochemical, optical, piezoelectric, capacitive, thermal, magnetic, mechanical, acoustic
- Sensor materials ranging from inorganic (metals, oxides, ceramics, etc.), organometallic (complexes, MOFs, etc.), and organic (polymers, molecules, COFs, etc.) to biomaterials, nanomaterials (nanoparticles, nanotubes, 2D materials, etc.), and hybrid systems
- Applications in healthcare (including artificial skin, wearable, and implantable sensors); environmental monitoring; food safety; industrial processes; robotics; agriculture; infrastructure; security; Internet of Things
- Devices: including microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip, nanosensors, instrumentation, imaging, displays, MEMS/NEMS, transistors, remote sensors
- Modelling and theory of sensing and recognition events
Topics such as signal processing, communications, machine learning, and data analysis (including algorithms) are considered when treated as part of complete sensor systems.
