About the journal
Photonic Sensors has been quarterly co-published by Springer and UESTC, and has been available online as an Open Access publication. There is no charge for the authors during all the peer-review and publication process. The journal is an ideal platform to disseminate the progress in both research findings and engineering technologies related to photonic sensors. It covers all aspects of sensing including the social philosophies, technologies and networks that help to enable or limit and direct the practical reach of sensing and welcomes articles assessing how global sensing networks can fundamentally alter societies in ways that are not yet foreseen. Three types of manuscripts, i.e., review articles, regular articles and letters, are accepted for publication.

Photonic Sensors has published 8 volumes, 30 issues, and more than 300 pear-reviewed and invited papers. It owned the most influential international journal award of year 2016 and 2017 in China. It is currently covered by SCI (Web of Science), EI-Compendex, ACM Digital Library, Astrophysics Data System (ADS), Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), ChemWeb, Google Scholar, and SCImago etc.

The Editor board of Photonic Sensors has 36 famous experts, including distinguished professors/fellows in top international universities/ academic society etc..
