Call for papers – Functional Nanomaterials for Sensing and Diagnostics Applications

Sensors & Diagnostics is delighted to welcome papers for its latest themed collection on ‘Functional Nanomaterials for Sensing and Diagnostics Applications’, guest edited by Suresh Kumar Kailasa (Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology, India); Tae Jung Park (Chung-Ang University, South Korea); and Tsuyoshi Minami (The University of Tokyo, Japan).

We welcome primary research articles, reviews and communications on the following topics:

  • Functional 0D nanostructured materials for molecular sensing
  • Plasmonic fluorescent sensors for point of care diagnostics
  • Nanostructure-based paper strips for biomarker detection
  • Functional nanomaterials in diagnostics and therapeutics
  • Nanomaterials for molecular imaging and therapeutics

The deadline for submissions is 31 October 2023. Submit your work to this collection now!

Promotion of the collection is scheduled for late-2023, with articles published online as soon as they’re accepted.

Articles can be submitted via our website: When submitting your manuscript, please mention that it is intended for this themed collection in the ‘notes to the editor’ box. The Editorial Office reserves the right to check suitability of submissions for both the journal and the scope of the collection, and inclusion of accepted articles in the final themed collection is not guaranteed.
