About the book

Biosensors are devices used to measure or detect the presence or concentration of a biological analyte in a quantitative or semiquantitative manner, such as a biomolecule, a biological structure or a microorganism. Biosensors consist of three parts: a component that recognizes the analyte (a biological recognition element) and produces a signal, a signal transducer, and a reader device.

The aim of this book is to highlight the current and novel strategies for biosensing. This book project includes different kinds of receptors and/or transducers strategies for biosensing, such as Schiff base metal complexes, biological molecules (DNA, proteins, enzymes, antibodies, multi-organisms, etc.), graphene oxide- nanomaterials, metal-organic frameworks, and electrospun fibers. Chapter's proposals can focus their work on the mode of physicochemical transduction (such as optical, thermal, piezoelectric and electrochemical) or the biorecognition element. Applications of these biosensors can include biomedical, environmental, bioremediation, and industrial amongst others.

Chapters can include original research or recompilation of existing data, discussing the state of the art of biosensing technologies.

Publishing process

Book initiated and editor appointed

Date completed: June 9th 2020

Applications to edit the book are assessed and a suitable editor is selected, at which point the process begins.

Chapter proposals submitted and reviewed

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: August 29th 2020

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: November 17th 2020

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: January 16th 2021

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
