How to publish in this journal



Sensors & Actuators, B: Chemical is an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to publishing research and development in the field of chemical sensors and biosensors, chemical actuators and analytical microsystems. The journal aims to promote original works that demonstrate significant progress beyond the current state of the art in these fields along with applicability to solve meaningful analytical problems. Review articles may only be submitted upon invitation from an Editor of the journal. The journal aims to publish works that are supported by experimental results and as such purely theoretical works are not accepted. The analytical performance in all analytical parameters needs to be reported and critically compared with the state of the art. Sensing applications will be considered only if they refer to analytically challenging complex samples and are properly validated. The scope of the journal encompasses, but is not restricted to, the following areas: • Novel chemical sensing and biosensing concepts, mechanisms and detection principles • Development of chemical sensors and biosensors • Fabrication technology of chemical sensors, biosensors, chip-based detection devices and chemical actuators • Chemical actuators including soft actuators, micro- and nanomotors, microfluidic components • Photonic and biophotonic sensors and chemical sensing systems • Lab-on-a-chip, Micro Total Analysis Systems (µTAS) and other biochips and microarray systems • Sensor and sensor-array chemometrics Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
