Transactions of The American Electrochemical Society (1902-1930, Vol. 1-58) Transactions of The Electrochemical Society (1931-1949, Vol. 59-96)
The Transactions were essentially proceedings (including discussions) of the two Society meetings held every year, and they were published in two volumes every year.
Bulletin of The American Electrochemical Society (1902-1930) Bulletin of The Electrochemical Society (1931-1947)
During the first half-dozen years or so, the Bulletin was published sporadically, a few times a year. Subsequently, this ran as a monthly newsletter. It merged with the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) and became part of its “C” section in 1948. These new items then ceased being published in JES and continued in Interface, which began publication in 1992.

Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES — 1948-present, Vol. 93-present) http://jes.ecsdl.org/
The transition from Transactions to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) was somewhat complicated. They overlapped for two years: 1948 (Vol. 93-94) and 1949 (Vol. 95-96), using the same volume numbers. During these years, the Transactions were published twice a year, as usual, at the same time that JES was published in two volumes per year with six monthly issues. The articles printed were identical, in identical order and page numbering in both publications, however, JES also incorporated the Bulletin. From 1950, the Transactions were discontinued and JES was published in one volume per year in twelve monthly issues. However, until 1952, only papers presented at the meetings were published in JES. Starting with 1953, other contributions were also published.
There was a special situation for several years (1951-1955): No editor was identified on the masthead, instead Robert M. Burns was identified as “Chairman of the Editorial Staff,” and Norman Hackerman as “Technical Editor.” Hackerman continued as “Technical Editor” even while Cecil King was editor. This post was eliminated starting with 1969.
In July 2012, JES ceased publishing papers in solid state science and technology and a new journal was created (ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology) to cover those areas.

The Electrochemical Society Monograph Series (1948-present)
ECS monographs are published on a variety of topics in conjunction with several well-known publishers. These books are detailed written studies of a single specialized topic in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology.
The Electrochemical Society Proceedings Series (PVs — 1955-2005)
The Proceedings Volumes (PV) were papers published from selected presentations made at ECS and ECS-sponsored meetings. They were published in both soft-cover and hard-cover through the years. Each volume had a different set of editors, too numerous to list here. In 2005, the PVs ceased publication under that title and were replaced by ECS Transactions.
