ECS is set to participate in its sixth International Open Access Week, an annual event organized by SPARC, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition. From October 19-26, ECS takes down the paywall to the entire ECS Digital Library on IOPscience, making over 160,000 scientific articles and abstracts free and accessible to everyone.
This year’s theme, “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion,” supports ECS’s long-term vision to Free the Science by providing access to all in order to further advance research. ECS publications showcase research that directly addresses the sustainability of the planet. Electrochemistry and solid state science continue to hold the keys to innovation in renewable energy, biomedical applications, water and sanitation, communications, transportation, technology, infrastructure, and beyond.
