Aims and Scope
Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220) provides an advanced forum for the science and technology of sensors and biosensors. It publishes reviews (including comprehensive reviews on the complete sensors products), regular research papers and short notes. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
Submitted the first draft on October 12th, made major revisions on November 5th. Two out of three judges had significant opinions, particularly one judge's opinion was more difficult to handle. Revised after one week. Responded to minor revisions on November 15th, only addressing the additional comments from that particular reviewer. Revised again on the 16th. The editor then delayed the review decisions for an additional week. On November 24th, the editor requested a second round of minor revisions and additional content. By this time, all reviewer comments had been addressed. On November 25th, another request was made to add the latest literature. The revisions were completed on the same day. After three more days of pending review decisions (including the weekend), the paper was accepted on November 29th. The three rounds of revisions were intense, but it is important to trust the editor's intention to improve the quality of the article. Following the suggestions of the editor and reviewers diligently will ensure a smooth acceptance process, with time being the only factor. As my editor is in a different time zone, with a 7-hour difference, I need to take breaks during the revision period and be prepared to respond promptly to queries. Only by replying quickly can we save each other's time. It is crucial to carefully read and address the opinions of reviewers and editors, ensuring that all modifications are comprehensive and thorough. Laziness is not acceptable. "Pending review decisions" simply indicates that the editor is busy and does not affect the acceptance. Usually, it takes 3 days, sometimes up to 7 days, and if it takes longer, it is appropriate to send a reminder email. In conclusion, it is important to make modifications diligently, respecting the editor and reviewers. Good luck to everyone!

Journal Evaluation:
2020 IF: 3.576 JCR: Q1 The most important data, everything else is not very important!
Speed: Extremely fast, most edits are completed on the same day by the editors. Thumbs up to the editors for their speed! I believe that fast speed is definitely an advantage and should not be biased as "good journals have slow speed and bad journals have fast speed." Every journal should pursue fast speed and not waste researchers' time. The fast speed of MDPI journals is achieved through the establishment of a large editorial team due to the journal's income.
Quality: Personally, I believe that the quality of a journal mainly depends on the level of the reviewers and academic editors. If the reviewers' opinions are professional and the academic editors have strict standards, then the quality of the journal can be guaranteed. Other factors such as whether it is open access, the speed of publication, and the high or low page charges should not be the main factors influencing the quality. Rejecting articles that do not meet the journal's requirements in a timely manner is responsible to everyone. Journals that waste researchers' time and act superior are doomed to pay the price of arrogance.
Gain: Don't always assume that others don't understand or can't understand. Often, the problem lies in not clearly explaining the question oneself.
Overall evaluation: Actually, except for some people pursuing top journals and representative works, in other cases, this journal is worth recommending.
