More Open Access from ECS

Paywall comes down from October 24-30

ECS participates in its seventh International Open Access Week from October 24-30, bringing down the paywall to over 171,000 journal and magazine articles and meeting abstracts. The ECS Digital Library on IOPscience is free and accessible to everyone that week. SPARC, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, organizes the annual global event to focus attention and inspire momentum toward the open sharing of knowledge.

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the Frontiers of Chemical/Molecular Engineering in Electrochemical Energy Technologies 2 symposium being held in honor of Professor Robert Savinell’s 70th Birthday at the 242nd ECS Meeting. 

The focus issue deals and the connected symposium address current and emerging ideas in electrocatalysis, electrolytes, and device design for fuel cells and flow batteries. Topics include molecular-level understanding of small-molecule electrocatalysis (including hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon- and nitrogen-containing molecules such as alcohols, ammonia, urea, carbon dioxide, and others); membranes and electrolytes including additives, nanoparticles, and deep eutectic chemistries; redox-active molecules; and new concepts in fuel cells and flow batteries. Contributions from both theory and experiment are welcome. Studies that connect molecular-level understanding to macroscopic electrochemical technologies are of particular interest. (more…)

Gerald FrankelThe Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 242nd ECS Meeting symposium, Critical Factors in Localized Corrosion 10: In Honor of Gerald Frankel.

The focus issue deals with all aspects of localized corrosion with the purpose of summarizing recent advances in fundamental and applied aspects of passivity breakdown, techniques to study initiation and propagation of localized corrosion, the effect of microstructure, advanced materials, as well as mitigation methods for localized corrosion. Papers presenting experimental and theoretical approaches to understanding localized corrosion are welcome. The issue is open to all interested authors who may submit review, critical review, perspective, methods, communication, and original research articles.

Accepting Submissions: October 6, 2022 | Submission Deadline: January 4, 2023
