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, or to purchase individual articles, 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 changes to standard issues of ECST**
Beginning with AiMES 2018, ECST will no longer publish standard issues for ECS biannual meetings. Instead, this content will be eligible for submission to ECS’s new preprint server platform, ECSarXiv. Although the enhanced issues of ECST will remain unchanged, enhanced authors will also have the opportunity to submit slideshows, posters, or data based on their AiMES presentation to the preprint server. More information about ECSarXiv can be found here.

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!
