Sensor Review (SR) is internationally regarded as the authoritative voice on all areas of sensor development, providing reviews, research and analysis of an exciting and increasingly influential field.

ISSN: 0260-2288
eISSN: 0260-2288

Aims and scope

Sensor Review (SR) publishes peer reviewed state-of-the-art articles and specially commissioned technology reviews. Each issue of this multidisciplinary journal includes high quality original content covering all aspects of sensors and their applications, and reflecting the most interesting and strategically important research and development activities from around the world.  Because of this, readers can stay at the very forefront of high technology sensor developments.

Emphasis is placed on detailed independent regular and review articles identifying the full range of sensors currently available for specific applications, as well as highlighting those areas of technology showing great potential for the future. The journal encourages authors to consider the practical and social implications of their articles.

All articles undergo a rigorous double-blind peer review process which involves an initial assessment of suitability of an article for the journal followed by sending it to, at least two reviewers in the field if deemed suitable. We reserve the right to reject any papers which are deemed by the Editorial Team to be out of scope for the journal in advance of review.

Sensor Review’s coverage includes, but is not restricted to:

  • Mechanical sensors – position, displacement, proximity, velocity, acceleration, vibration, force, torque, pressure, and flow sensors
  • Electric and magnetic sensors – resistance, inductive, capacitive, piezoelectric, eddy-current, electromagnetic, photoelectric, and thermoelectric sensors
  • Temperature sensors, infrared sensors, humidity sensors
  • Optical, electro-optical and fibre-optic sensors and systems, photonic sensors
  • Biosensors, wearable and implantable sensors and systems, immunosensors
  • Gas and chemical sensors and systems, polymer sensors
  • Acoustic and ultrasonic sensors
  • Haptic sensors and devices
  • Smart and intelligent sensors and systems
  • Nanosensors, NEMS, MEMS, and BioMEMS
  • Quantum sensors
  • Sensor systems: sensor data fusion, signals, processing and interfacing, signal conditioning
  • Distributed sensors, wireless sensors and networks
  • Remote sensors/sensing and systems
  • Sensor materials, processing and fabrication
  • Soft measurement – virtual and soft sensors and sensing
  • Sensor measurement uncertainty, accuracy, calibration and reliability
  • Theory, principles, standardisation, design, modelling and evaluation of sensors
  • Cyber security of wireless sensors (IoT) and networks
