How do I submit to ECS Transactions?

If you are presenting in a symposium that has elected to publish their proceedings in an issue of ECS Transactions, the corresponding author of your meeting abstract will receive an invitation to submit when the submission site opens. This email will contain the URL for the site, as well as basic instructions on how to prepare and submit the paper when it is ready.

Why did I receive an invitation to submit some, but not all of my papers?

Not all symposia elect to publish conference proceedings – please be sure to check the Call for Papers to determine if your symposium will be publishing an issue of ECST. If your symposium is scheduled to publish an issue, but you did not receive an invitation to submit for one of your papers, please contact for assistance.

How do I publish a proceedings paper if my symposium is not publishing an ECST issue?

If you are interested in publishing research related to your presentation, but your symposium has not planned to publish any proceedings, we are encouraging authors to submit a preprint to ECSarXiv, ECS’s new preprint service. Submissions can be full-text articles, slide decks, or posters. Be sure to tag your submission with the meeting name to make sure it’s linked to other meeting content! Find out more, or submit now.

Can I still submit to an ECS journal if I publish in ECST?

Because ECS Transactions is not formally peer-reviewed, there is no conflict should an author wish to submit their work to both ECST and 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.
