ECS is an international not for profit organization founded in 1902 concerned with a broad range of phenomena relating to electrochemical and solid-state science technology. ECS’s main objectives are:
to advance the theory and practice of electochemistry, solid-state science, and allied subjects;
to encourage research and dissemination of knowledge in these fields; and
to assure the availability of adequate training and education of fundamental and applied scientists and engineers in these fields.
We seek support from individuals and corporations to expand and enhance the services and programs that we are able to offer to the electrochemistry and solid-state science communities and the world.
ECS is developing an extensive Digital Library (DL) that will serve as a seamless resource center for its members and subscribers. The DL will provide the foundation for ECS to offer a central location for its members and subscribers to find the needed resources available to continue their advancement of electrochemistry and solid-state science. It provides searchable online access to the various journals, books, and other collections published by the Society. Our capability to disseminate research electronically is necessary to meet the needs of our members and the objectives of the Society.
ECS continues to ensure the educational resources are available to all its members. We are interested in expanding the opportunities to students to carry on their studies in the fields of electrochemistry and solid-state sciences, by increasing the number of summer fellowships, adding more student chapters (domestically and internationally), and increasing the financial support to attend our meetings.
We Need Financial Support to…
Provide state of the art technology that makes our publications available electronically to our members and subscribers.
Fund programs that foster the advancement of future generations of electrochemists and solid-state scientists.
Secure funding for ECS through philanthropic foundations that base decisions upon the level of donations received from members of our organization.
The Successful Future of ECS
In the past five years…
We have launched the ECS Digital Library that includes archives of The Journal of Electrochemical Society back to 1976, and when complete will include all present and past ECS publications.
We have increased opportunities for students to be involved with ECS through student chapters, awarded student memberships, fellowships and awards.
We have created an endowment to support our publications in order for us to move forward with the demands of offering electronic access in the future.
