ECS has great news for its readers and authors the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES), beginning with the July 2001 issue, is now an "e-first" (electronic-first) publication. This means that each article will be published as soon as it has been prepared for online posting, without waiting for an entire issue to be completed. These e-first articles are complete, final articles, with content identical to what will appear in the monthly print edition. Online articles contain final bibliographic citation information (including page numbers corresponding to the print edition) and are fully citable.
Electrochemical and Solid-State Letters (ESL), the rapid-publication companion to JES, has been committed to e-first mode since its inception. Now articles in both ECS journals are published online quickly and with a high degree of functionality. The fast delivery time and the many online features of articles in ECS journals are the result of ECS's selection of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) Online Journal Publishing Service (OJPS) for the production and distribution of its technical serial publications. ECS journals can be accessed from both the ECS web site and from the OJPS site (http://ojps.aip.org/JES/) and (http://ojps.aip.org/ESL/).
E-first provides authors and readers with the fastest possible delivery of accepted manuscripts. ECS is proud to offer e-first publication for its journals and we welcome your feedback. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
