JSS CoverApplication deadline is June 18, 2018.

ECS (The Electrochemical Society) is seeking to fill the position of editor of ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology. Candidates should have qualities of leadership, technical breadth, time commitment, creativity, motivation, and international reputation. The successful candidate also will have excellent English-language writing and editing skills. The editor serves at the pleasure of the Publications Subcommittee for an initial, minimum term of two years, renewable for additional terms, up to twelve years. A yearly honorarium is offered by the Society.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) has been in existence since 2012. It was created as an outgrowth of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) to deal more exclusively in solid state topics. JES and JSS provide unparalleled opportunities to disseminate basic research and technology results in electrochemical and solid state science and technology. JSS publishes a minimum of 14 regular and focus issues each year. ECS journals offer author choice open access.

The JSS editor’s responsibility is to fulfill the Society’s mission regarding the maintenance and development of its publications. The Society is committed to disseminating research and to advancing electrochemical and solid state science and technology. Toward that purpose, the Society seeks to maximize both the quality and quantity of submissions to the journals, and maximize the value of the journals to both readers and authors. This call for applications is for individuals who can achieve these objectives. The JSS editor is required to make publishing and editorial decisions consistent with maintaining the integrity of these scholarly publications.

ECS prides itself on publishing high-quality, rigorously vetted content in its peer-reviewed journals, the Journal of The Electrochemical Society and the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology.

As one of the last remaining independent, nonprofit society publishers of electrochemical and solid state science and technology, ECS is committed to the provision of valuable and efficient services for its authors, whose research accelerates advances toward sustainability on a global scale.

Success in this endeavor requires the Society’s constant critical attention—to its authors, its publications, and vacillating trends in scholarly publishing.

To that end, ECS would like your feedback.

After over 115 years of peer-reviewed research, what is it that keeps authors publishing in ECS journals? In what ways do ECS journals excel?

To those who have opted to publish elsewhere, how might ECS journals adapt to meet your needs as an author? What aspects of ECS journals need reexamination?

Above all else, what do you look for in a scientific journal?

Whether you’re a proponent or a critic of ECS journals, please take a few minutes to tell us more.

Any feedback you are able to provide—positive or negative—will assist ECS in evaluating the strength and scope of its peer-reviewed journals.

Share your thoughts today to help shape the future of these publications!
