Aims & Scope

Sensor Review publishes peer reviewed state-of-the-art articles and specially commissioned technology reviews. Each issue includes high quality content covering all aspects of sensor development and application, 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 review articles that identify the full range of sensors currently available for specific applications, as well as highlighting those areas of technology that show great potential for the future.

All articles undergo rigorous double-blind peer review, and the journal’s policy of not publishing work that has only been tested in simulation means that only the very best and most practical research articles are included.  This ensures that the material that is published has real relevance and value for commercial manufacturing and research organizations. For a full list of our review board, please see below.


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

  • Nanosensors
  • Energy harvesting
  • Environmental sensors
  • Wireless sensor networks
  • Localization and navigation
  • Fibre optic sensors
  • Machine vision
  • Visual navigation
  • Terahertz imaging
  • Ultrasonics
  • Eddy current sensing
  • Weld inspection and tracking
  • Haptic devices
  • Gas and chemical sensors
  • 3D imaging
  • Polymer sensors
  • MEMS sensors
  • Biosensors
  • Test and inspection
  • Automotive sensors
  • Sensor data fusion and signal processing

Key benefits

Read by managers, engineers and research scientists all over the world, Sensor Review 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.

Authors are encouraged to include Executive Summaries that complement article abstracts by highlighting the commercial potential of the work that is presented; and online videos that add an extra dimension to the published work.
