The supporting journals for the 5th International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology are Biosensors & Bioelectronics and our new Open Access journal, Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research.
Biosensors & Bioelectronics is the principal international journal devoted to research, design, development and application of biosensors and bioelectronics. It is an interdisciplinary journal serving professionals with an interest in the exploitation of biological materials and designs in novel diagnostic and electronic devices including sensors, DNA chips, electronic noses, lab-on-a-chip and mTAS.

Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research is an open access journal devoted to research, design development and application of all bio-sensing and sensing technologies.
The scope of Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research encompasses, but is not restricted to, areas such as: Sensing principles and mechanismsNew materials development (transducers and sensitive/recognition components), Fabrication technology, Actuators, Optical devices, Electrochemical devices, Mass-sensitive devices, Gas sensors, Biosensors, Analytical microsystems.

Participants will be invited to submit manuscripts based on the 5th International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology (BITE 2017) presentations for possible publication in Biosensors & Bioelectronics and Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research, with the intention of becoming part of a Virtual Special Issue (VSI) dedicated to the conference.
A Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a new concept which eliminates time to publication for contributors and will make this conference special issue more complete than it has ever been. Some features include:
- Accepted papers are published individually as soon as they are accepted in a regular journal volume
- Footnotes indicating which conference they were presented will be included, and will link to the VSI
- The VSI will include a preface from the chairman (Richard Luxton) and also include photos and/or content from the conference.
Authors are invited to select the most relevant journal for submission bearing in mind that Biosensors and Bioelectronics has a much narrower scope than Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research and a higher rejection rate.
All manuscripts will be subjected to the mandatory selection process for the journal selected, including the strict peer review procedure; therefore acceptance for presentation at the meeting is not a guarantee for publication in either of the journals.
