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!
