ECS Expands Online Journal Archive in Digital Library
(Pennington, NJ) –ECS (The Electrochemical Society) is pleased to announce that an additional 20 years of content from the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) has been added to its online archive. The JES archive now begins with Volume 102 from 1955. This is the latest phase of an ongoing project to make the entire journal content accessible in electronic format, ultimately going all the way back to its first iteration published in 1902. All articles from Electrochemical and Solid-State Letters (ESL), the other technical journal published by ECS, are already available online going back to the publication’s launch in mid-1998.
ECS gratefully acknowledges the financial support that has helped make the archive possible. Generous gifts have been made by the Battery Division of ECS, and by the individuals James Amick, Ralph Brodd, Larry Faulkner, Robert Frankenthal, and Wayne Worrell – all past presidents of the Society. In recognition of their sponsorship, each donor has a JES archive volume as a named collection.
The archive is accessible from the ECS Digital Library (DL) (http://www.ecsdl.org/), which provides a home for all ECS digital content. Articles in the archive are available as full-text PDF files, with HTML-formatted tables of contents, abstract pages, and searchable database records. Complete JES content in the DL includes the current volume, backfile, and archive. The backfile is the content of the five (5) years preceding the current year. The archive consists of all the past volumes that are not part of the backfile. ECS members and subscribers have access to the current volume and the backfile. Through the end of 2007, ECS members and nonmember subscribers will also have free trial access to the JES archive.
ECS journals provide the most authoritative research in solid-state and electrochemical science and technology. Subjects covered include: batteries and energy storage; fuel cells and energy conversion; corrosion, passivation, and anodic films; electrochemical and chemical deposition and etching; electrochemical synthesis and engineering; physical and analytical electrochemistry; dielectric science and materials; semiconductor devices, and materials, and processing; sensors and displays; and nanostructured materials, carbon nanotubes, and fullerenes. Authors interesting in submitting to the journals may visit the ECS website for instructions.
ECS is an 8,000-member organization of scientists and engineers in over 70 countries worldwide. The Society’s tradition of scientific excellence provides a strong foundation, yet enables a progressive atmosphere for the exchange of knowledge and ideas, in both fundamental and applied aspects.
