The Electrochemical Society relies upon the technical expertise and judgement of the many individuals who, as reviewers, help to maintain the high standards characteristic of the Society’s peer-reviewed journals. In 2020, 3,523 individuals supported the Society’s long-standing commitment to ensuring both the technical quality of the works published, as well as the integrity and validity of the peer review the community provides. ECS greatly appreciates the time and effort put forth by these individuals, and the Society would like to express a sincere thank-you for their hard work and support. (more…)
Beginning January 1, 2021, The Electrochemical Society journals will accept submission of graphical abstracts for inclusion in the online publication of papers. The goal is to facilitate browsing within the tables of contents and to encourage interdisciplinary research among the topical interest areas.
Submitted graphics should present an easy-to-comprehend synopsis of the work reported in the paper, allowing readers to easily identify papers relevant to their particular research interests, without providing the specific results or any conclusions reached. Ideally, the image should be a single snapshot of the research presented which allows an expert in the field to understand the significance of the work while simultaneously encouraging the non-expert to read the paper.

Present your research to the world by publishing with The Electrochemical Society’s (ECS) flagship journals, Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) and the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS).
Since 1902, ECS has been at the forefront of publishing electrochemical and solid state science and technology research. For 118 years, the Society has been publishing high quality, peer reviewed journals that contain the work of renowned scientists, engineers, investors, and Nobel laureates. (more…)
The ECS community is one-of-a-kind. Researchers, engineers, students, established professionals, and early career researchers in the electrochemical and solid state science and technology, and allied fields rely on the Society as a trusted resource throughout their careers.
From networking events, professional development workshops, biannual meetings, ECS’s journals, and more, The Electrochemical Society is a platform that touches many aspects of our members’ professional lives. (more…)
The Electrochemical Society relies upon the technical expertise and judgement of the many individuals who, as reviewers, help to maintain the high standards characteristic of the Society’s peer-reviewed journals. In 2019, 3,693 individuals supported the Society’s long-standing commitment to ensuring both the technical quality of the works published, as well as the integrity and validity of the peer review the community provides.

Free the Science Week wraps up this coming Sunday, April 7, but Free the Science—as a movement—continues all year round, propelled in large part by the institutions and authors that take advantage of the benefits of ECS Plus.
Free the Science Week celebrates those working to eliminate barriers to access for researchers around the world.
But did you know that the Society also supports green open access?
ECS’s green open access policy allows you to freely and immediately share the articles you publish in ECS journals without using an open access article credit or paying an article processing charge.
But the Free the Science initiative isn’t just about making research free to access; it’s also about making research free to publish.
So one of the best ways you can celebrate Free the Science Week is by making plans to publish your next ECS article Author Choice Open Access.
ECS is pleased to announce that articles published in its two peer-reviewed journals, the Journal of The Electrochemical Society and the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology, are being indexed in Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science (WoS) faster than ever before—on a rolling, article-by-article basis.
How did it work before? Until recently, WoS indexed ECS journals upon issue close, and it could take about six weeks from the close of an issue for receipt/delivery to WoS. This means if the first article in an issue was published at the beginning of the month, and the last published at the end of the month, the first article could go 10 weeks or more before being indexed in WoS.

The journal impact factors (JIFs) for the ECS journals continue to grow, as evidenced by the data recently released by Clarivate Analytics. For the 2017 reporting year, the ECS journals continue to be among the top-ranked journals. Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) is in the top two for Materials Science, Coatings, and Films; and in the top ten for Electrochemistry. The JIFs are published in Journal Citation Reports (JCR) and are just one metric used to gauge the quality of a large number of scholarly journals.
