This Special Issue on “Sensors and Sensor Systems for Atmospheric and Environmental Pollution Monitoring” aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest research trends, technologies, and applications in the field of pollution monitoring. The continuous growth in human activities has led to an alarming increase in pollution, which poses significant health risks to humans and the environment. Sensors and sensor systems have emerged as a valuable tool for real-time environmental pollution, for example, in air pollution monitoring and enabling the accurate identification and tracking of pollutants such as particulate matter, NOx, SO2, and many others. In land or soil monitoring, sensors are able to assess and measures concentrations of chemicals such as persistent organic pollutants. This Special Issue will cover a wide range of topics related to atmospheric and environmental pollution monitoring, including novel sensor fabrication techniques, signal processing and data analysis methods, wireless communication protocols, and application case studies.

Contributions are welcome from both academia and industry to offer a platform for interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations that can lead to innovative solutions to tackle the challenges posed by air pollution. We hope this Special Issue will serve as a valuable reference for researchers and engineers who are working towards improving the quality of our air and protecting public health.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI’s English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
