Special Issue "Sensors for Glycoproteins and Glycated Proteins"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 May 2017
This Special Issue focuses on biosensors for glycoproteins and glycated proteins. Biosensors for any type of glycoproteins, extrinsically glycated proteins, such as HbA1c and related compounds, are considered for publication in this Special Issue. These biosensors include optical sensors, such as colorimetric and fluorometric sensors, as well as electrochemical sensors in amperometric, voltametric, impedimetric, and potentiometric detection modes. Other biosensors, such as quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensors, are also welcome. Biosensors applicable to biomedical analysis, environmental monitoring, process control in food and pharmaceutical industries, and biological research are within the scope of this Special Issue. Submission of papers dealing with the construction of high-performance of biosensors based on metal and carbon nanomaterials is particularly encouraged. Both original research papers and review articles on the basic principle and applications of biosensors are solicited.
This Special Issue aims to promote the exchanges of ideas and the knowledge of scientists and engineers working in the communities of biosensors.

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 papers will be 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 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 1800 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.
