ECS Transactions

ECS Transactions (ECST) is the official meeting proceedings of The Electrochemical Society. This publication features full-text content of proceedings from ECS meetings and ECS-sponsored meetings. For a full listing of available volumes and issues, please visit the ECS Transactions page of the ECS Digital Library. Full issues may be purchased through the ECS Online Store.

New for 2018 – All authors are welcome to submit a full-text preprint, slides, or other presentation-related materials to the new preprint server, ECSarXiv.

**Important information regarding enhanced and standard issues of ECST**
Every ECS meeting attendee has the opportunity to submit a full-text manuscript based on their meeting abstract to ECS Transactions. ECST publishes two types of issues:

Enhanced – These issues are published prior to the meeting. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit a manuscript to ECST if their symposium has committed to publishing an enhanced issue.

Standard – This issue is published after the meeting and contains full-text manuscripts from all symposia that did not publish an enhanced issue. Submission to this issue is optional but strongly encouraged. Please note that beginning in fall 2018 (AiMES 2018), ECST will no longer publish standard issues for ECS biannual meetings. Instead, authors will have the opportunity to publish their work on our preprint server platform, ECSarXiv.

ECST author instructions and information on manuscript preparation can be found here.

Journal submission information

All authors of accepted meeting abstracts and/or ECST papers are encouraged to submit their papers to an ECS journal. While the expectation is that six months is sufficient time to revise an abstract and/or ECST paper to meet the stricter standards of the journals, there is no deadline for submission with ECS’s continuous journal publication model.

Submissions to the journals must be made using the online submission system. Click here for author instructions and to submit your manuscript.

Please note: There is no conflict should an author wish to submit their work to both ECST and an ECS journal.

Would you like to make your work freely available to researchers across the globe? Consider publishing your paper as Author Choice Open Access. Make sure to read about open access with ECS and learn how to get involved with the Free the Science initiative!
