Our mission

The mission of The Electrochemical Society is to advance theory and practice at the forefront of electrochemical and solid state science and technology, and allied subjects.

To encourage research, discussion, critical assessment, and dissemination of knowledge in these fields, the Society holds meetings, publishes scientific papers, fosters training and education of scientists and engineers, and cooperates with other organizations to promote science and technology in the public interest.

Our vision

The vision of ECS is to be recognized as the steward of electrochemical and solid state science and technology. By creating uninhibited availability of the science through open access, ECS can Free the Science, and accelerate scientific discovery and innovation, leading the community as the advocate, guardian, and facilitator of our technical domain. ECS strives to be an inclusive organization that promotes and values diversity.

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) brand name

Founded as the American Electrochemical Society in 1902, the society’s name changed to The Electrochemical Society in 1930 to more accurately reflect the Society’s international activities and membership. The official acronym of ECS was adopted in 2000 in response to the changing technical needs and interests of the Society’s expanding membership.  

Our identity

ECS is the trusted steward of electrochemistry and solid state science and technology, and allied subjects. ECS advances scientific theory and practice by publishing cutting-edge research, hosting prestigious meetings, fostering relevant training and education, and collaborating with other global organizations.

The Society’s global community comprises over 35,000 electrochemists, engineers, and solid state scientists, with over 8,000 members in 85+ countries. Thousands of academics, researchers, and government and industry leaders share pioneering scientific developments, exchange ideas, network, and expand research horizons at ECS’s well-established biannual, co-hosted, and sponsored meetings.

Since its inception in 1902, the Society has disseminated the most important peer-reviewed scientific research in its fields. The ECS Digital Library, hosted on IOPscience, encompasses 160,000+ journal and magazine articles and meeting abstracts, including the Journal of The Electrochemical Society, the oldest peer-reviewed journal in its field. The Society supports open access through Free the Science, the Society’s initiative to make research freely available to world readers and free for authors to publish.
