Here are some tips for navigating the digital library’s more than 151,000 articles and abstracts—and making the most of the week of free access.
Search and discover
ECS research is discoverable through a variety of routes.
ECS journals are abstracted and/or indexed in Google/Google Scholar, Web of Science, Scopus, Chemical Abstracts (CAS), Engineering Index, ChemPort, INSPEC, ProQuest, and others. The Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) is indexed in Science Citation Index, and the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) is indexed in Science Citation Index Expanded.
If you are searching for ECS research through the ECS Digital Library itself, you have a number of options.
From the ECS Digital Library home page, you can select an ECS publication that interests you, and peruse its contents by issue. From many of the publication-specific landing pages, you can also navigate to lists of the most-read and most-cited articles of the previous month.
Alternatively, the digital library features an advanced search functionality, which allows you to search for ECS research using specific criteria.
Note: While reading articles and abstracts in the digital library, be sure to check out the bottom of each page, where recommended articles from ECS and the world’s leading peer-reviewed journals and research outlets will be listed under the heading “May be of interest.”

Articles in the ECS Digital Library are organized into collections by collection type, topical interest area, and article type.
From these pages, for instance, you can navigate to listings of all the Editors’ Choice and review articles published in ECS journals.
