The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is dedicated to the dissemination of research within fundamental and applied areas of electrochemistry, including experimental and theoretical aspects of electrodes, interfaces, and devices.
New in 2012
ECS has been long-heralded as the nonprofit home of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES), its flagship journal. Published continuously from 1902 to the present, JES remains one of the most-highly cited journals in electrochemistry.
In 2012, ECS is launching three new scholarly, peer-reviewed scientific journals, positioned to join JES as leaders in the field. First issues of the new journals are scheduled to be published in print in mid-2012, and the first articles will be available online in early summer.
For close to 110 years ECS has recognized the need for researchers to publish technical content with a timely turnaround and have access to resources dedicated to their studies. Now, to further enhance its mission to encourage research and dissemination of knowledge, ECS has developed two distinct publication channels for scholarly research: Electrochemical Science & Technology and Solid State Science & Technology, each to include a traditional and a rapid-publication journal.
Publications within the Electrochemical Science & Technology area include the full-length, re-scoped Journal of The Electrochemical Society and the rapid-publication ECS Electrochemistry Letters, which will replace Electrochemical and Solid-State Letters (ESL). (ESL will be published through issue 6 of the 2012 volume and then archived in the ECS Digital Library.)
Adding to the depth of the ECS Digital Library, each journal will feature:
Targeted research and technical content areas.
Immediate and wide dissemination of content to more than 1,000 academic, research, and corporate libraries worldwide, as well as individuals.
The Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) is the leader in the field of electrochemical science and technology. This peer-reviewed journal publishes an average of 600 pages of 90 articles each month. Articles are posted online, with a monthly paper edition following electronic publication. Full papers, review articles, and themed issues that focus on high impact topics are encouraged.
Technical Interest Areas
Papers are selected by a prestigious group of Technical Editors, responsible for the following interest areas:
Batteries and Energy Storage
Chemical and Biological Sensors
Corrosion Science and Technology
Fuel Cells, Electrolyzers, and Energy Conversion
Organic and Bioelectrochemistry
Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry, Electrocatalysis, and Photoelectrochemistry
Of particular interest are the areas of energy conversion and energy storage, corrosion, electrodeposition, electrocatalysis, double layer phenomena, sensors, bioelectrochemistry, electrochemical engineering, in situ spectroelectrochemical methods, and electroanalytical chemistry, as they relate to the further understanding of processes of both fundamental and technological importance leading to the rational design and optimization of small and large scale devices.
Specific topics of interest to JES include batteries, low and moderate temperature, and solid oxide fuel cells, electrolyzers, double layer capacitors, corrosion in wet and dry environments, electrodeposition of metals and semiconductors, etching, inorganic and biochemical sensors, reactor design and characterization, biological sensors wet and dry corrosion nanostructures, electrochemical methods for the synthesis of materials such as metal alloys and semiconductors, and for the fabrication of structures of all dimensions.
