Special Issue Journals

Participants are invited to submit manuscripts based on their EUROPTRODE 2016 conference presentations for possible publication in Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical or Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research with the intention of publishing in an Elsevier Virtual Special Issue that is dedicated to EUROPTRODE 2016 Conference.

A Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is an entirely new concept which essentially rules out possible delays in publication for contributors to the special issue and will make this conference special issue more complete and accessible than it has ever been. Please see below its advantageous characteristics:

  • Accepted papers are published individually in regular journal issues as soon as they are accepted;

  • Footnote indicating which conference they were presented will be included, and will link to the VSI;

  • The collection of VSI papers will be hosted on journal homepage site of Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical – with links to the relevant papers at Science Direct;

  • The VSI will include a preface, photos, award information if any, of the conference.

Authors are suggested reading the Scopes of these two journals carefully when selecting the best-fit journal for submission.
