Virtual special issue

Participants are invited to submit manuscripts based on their presentations at the  6th International Conference on Bio-Sensing (BITE2019) for possible publication in Biosensors & Bioelectronics or Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research, with the intention of publishing in a Virtual Special Issue that is dedicated to the conference.

  • Accepted papers will be published individually as soon as they are accepted in a regular journal volume;
  • There will be footnotes included in accepted papers, indicating that they were presented at the 6th International Conference on Bio-Sensing;
  • All accepted papers will be combined as a virtual special issue hosted on the ScienceDirect pages of Biosensors & Bioelectronics and Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research, retaining all citation details;
  • A preface or editorial might accompany the virtual special issue.

Authors are suggested taking a special note of the scopes of these two journals before deciding to submit a paper to which journal. Biosensors & Bioelectronics has a much narrower scope than Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research and a very high rejection rate.

Please note that Sensing and Bio-Sensing Research is an open access journal: all articles will be immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download. To provide open access, this journal has an open access fee (also known as an article publishing charge APC) which needs to be paid by the authors or on their behalf e.g. by their research funder or institution. For more information, please see Guide for Authors of this journal.

  • Click on the “Submit Paper” option from the top menu;
  • Enter your user name and password (first time users will have to register);
  • After entering the title of your manuscript, please select article type or issue type “VSI: BITE2019”;
  • Follow the remaining step-by-step instructions to submit your paper.
  • Submission deadline: 30 September 2019

When preparing your manuscript(s), please carefully follow the Guide to Authors of your selected journal, which you can find on the online submission site. In your cover letter please mention that your manuscript is intended for the BITE2019 virtual special issue.

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 the journal.

Supporting publications

The supporting journals for the 6th 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.
