The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a collection of papers on trends and biohybrid approaches in microbial electrochemical systems.

The issue focuses on the most recent approaches utilized to develop microbial electrochemical systems, from the use of porous biocompatible, bio-derived electrodes, to the implementation of novel redox mediation approaches and the engineering of the biocatalysts. Innovative application of microbial electrochemical systems is of interest for the special issue, such as the application for self-powered biosensing, bioelectrosynthesis, and biosolar cells.

Papers presenting novel techniques for the study and characterization of microbial electrochemical systems are also welcome. (more…)

ECS Celebrates 2023 Peer Review Week

Peer Review Week 2023Announcing the Top Peer Reviewer Recognition Program

“The engagement, commitment, and delivery of strong manuscript submissions peer review reports has significantly impacted The Electrochemical Society (ECS)’s ability to maintain a standard of excellence and rigor in the publication of its scholarly journals. ECS holds its peer reviewers in high regard and wishes to recognize those peer reviewers who represent the standard of excellence that ECS has carried throughout its 120+ year history.”

Adrian Plummer, Director of Publications, The Electrochemical Society


Please join ECS in celebrating our China: Top Cited Paper Awards winning authors.

Our publishing partner, IOP, presents these awards to papers in the top one percent (1%) of the most-cited articles recently published in IOP journals with corresponding authors based in China. The top cited papers are identified based on data from Clarivate’s Web of Science during the period of 2020 to 2022.

We congratulate all the China: Top Cited Paper Awards authors on their outstanding achievements and are proud to amplify their work within the scholarly record.

E. Jennings (EJ) Taylor

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the Pulse and Reverse Pulse Electrolytic Processes 4: In Honor of EJ Taylor symposium at the 244th ECS Meeting.

This focus issue is in honor of Dr. E. Jennings (EJ) Taylor, a pioneer in the development of industrial applications of electrochemical deposition, surface finishing, and conversion technologies. Dr. Taylor has made significant contributions to the development and commercialization of industrial electrolytic processes, with a specific focus on pulse and pulse reverse electrolytic processes used to enhance a variety of electrochemical processes, coupled with the design and development of scalable, modular apparatus. Dr. Taylor founded Faraday Technology, Inc. in 1991, with a mission to change the focus of electrochemical technologies from the art of complex chemistries to the science of pulse and pulse reverse electric fields. He has been a leader in research into surface finishing technologies, including electrodeposition and electropolishing, as well as the development of electrochemical conversion, recycling, and decarbonization technologies. Dr. Taylor has received awards including the 2013 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge award for electrodeposition of chrome coatings for wear applications, 2011 R&D 100 award for electrodeposition of Co-Mn alloy coating for solid oxide fuel cells as part of a team with DOE NETL, and 2007 Blum Scientific Achievement award of the National Association of Surface Finishers.

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) is continuing its search for candidates to serve as Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of ECS Advances (the journal, ECSA). (more…)

Spotlight on Kody D. Wolfe, Ardavan Zanganeh, Richard N. Arthur, Jason P. Trembly, and Damilola A. Daramola for their article, “Considerations for Electrochemical Phosphorus Precipitation: A Figures of Merit Approach.” Electrochemical phosphorus precipitation (EPP) from wastewater is a promising emerging technology for recovering valuable nutrients. While there are significant advantages of EPP compared to traditional phosphorus recovery, large gaps in reported performance exist between EPP and industrial methods. Consult the current issue of ECS Interface to learn what the authors believe is the key to closing these gaps.


ECS seeks self nominations for the position of Technical Editor for the Journal of The Electrochemical Society in the Fuel Cells, Electrolyzers, and Energy Conversion topical interest area (TIA).

Nominees for these positions must possess and maintain scientific knowledge of the scope of the topical interest area. Specific topics include, but are not limited to: (more…)

Spotlight on Matthew Liu and William Tarpeh for their contribution to The Electrochemical Society Interface summer issue: “Reports from the Frontier: Electrifying Chemical Transformations and Separations to Valorize Wastewater Nitrogen.”

The authors address “…treating nitrogen as a resource to recover rather than simply a pollutant to remove aligns with the US National Academy of Engineering’s call to manage the nitrogen cycle, a challenge central to chemical manufacturing and ecosystem protection.” (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 18th International Symposium on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC-XVIII), which took place from May 28-June 2, 2023, in Boston, MA. The papers in this issue are based on SOFC-XVIII and cover all aspects of SOFCs and solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs), including:

  • Development and demonstration of systems;
  • Materials for different cell components and their processing and performance;
  • Cell, stack, and system designs;
  • Fabrication and testing;
  • New applications including electrolysis and reversible cell operations;
  • Flexibility to various fuels;
  • Performance modeling;
  • Durability and reliability issues.


Join us at the 244th ECS Meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden, for our third Peer Review Excellence Workshop on Sunday, October 8, 2023, at 1300h CET. This hands-on interactive workshop is optional for registered in-person meeting attendees.
