Printed sensors have been with us now for about two decades, and have brought about a revolution in analytical science and clinical chemistry. The advent of the glucose electrode strip has been particularly influential. The printing of sensors was a paradigm shift in sensor fabrication. Sensors evolved from cumbersome, three-dimensional devices, to products of two-dimensional, planar fabrication processes. Until recently, the technology of printed sensors had not evolved significantly from strips based primarily on screen printing technology. However, the recent explosion in printed electronics technology, the development of novel print-processable nanomaterials, and the development of novel printing techniques and supporting fabrication methodologies have brought about a new wave of novel printed sensor technologies.
This special issue of Sensors will feature reviews and original research articles detailing highly novel and disruptive advances in printed sensors, their materials, fabrication, and application.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
