*Based on the number of ECS Transactions papers submitted from each symposium, issues may be canceled or combined at ECS’s discretion.

If you are interested in publishing research related to your presentation, but your symposium has not planned to publish any proceedings, authors are encouraged to submit a proceedings paper to ECSarXiv, ECS’s preprint service. At the time of submission, be sure to include the keyword “240th ECS Meeting” to make sure it is linked to other content from the meeting! Find out more, or submit now.

Purchasing information

Once meeting registration opens, ECS Transactions full-issue PDFs, CDs, and USBs are available for preorder through September 10, 2021. In order to have appropriate stock onsite, hardcopy (CD or USB) editions of ECS Transactions are available on a preorder-only basis. Preordered CDs and USBs are available for pickup onsite at the meeting only and will not be shipped. All preordered PDF copies are sent via email through a downloadable link no later than the start of the meeting. Once the volume is published, all individual articles are available to browse and read in the ECS Digital Library on IOPscience. Full-issues may be purchased through the ECS Online Store. After the meeting, print-on-demand softcover editions are available through ECS’s print-on-demand vendor, Curran Associates.

Proceeding papers found on ECSarXiv are free to read and download.


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 receives an invitation to submit when the submission site opens. This email contains 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 is publishing an issue of ECST. If your symposium is scheduled to publish an issue, but you did not receive an invitation to submit one of your papers, please contact for assistance.

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.
