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.

When the Washington Post publicized the launch of North America’s first all-electric, zero-emissions boats, they referred to an authoritative article on battery safety in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society. The introduction of two electric Maid of the Mist tour vessels at Niagara Falls heralds a new era in maritime travel. The boats, which run on dual banks of lithium ion batteries charged with hydro-electric power supplied by the Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant, are a zero-emission operation. But are their Li-ion batteries safe? (more…)

Submission Deadline EXTENDED: February 12, 2020 March 15, 2020

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society‘s Focus Issue on Battery Safety, Reliability, and Mitigation.

About the focus issue

This Journal of The Electrochemical Society focus issue addresses the fundamental risks and issues associated with battery safety and reliability. Industry challenges with fielding safe and reliable batteries are increasing as new cell designs are introduced into advanced energy storage applications requiring higher specific energies, fast charging, and lower cost alternatives. As such, improvements in cell and battery safety design without compromising performance continues to be a major focus for researchers, manufacturers and users across all sectors of the energy storage marketplace. Better understanding of battery failure mechanisms will further enable regulatory agency approval and public acceptance of early deployment of advanced battery energy storage systems for high reliability applications.

Submission Deadline: November 27, 2019

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society‘s Focus Issue on Challenges in Novel Electrolytes, Organic Materials, and Innovative Chemistries for Batteries in Honor of Michel Armand.

About the focus issue

This focus issue of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is devoted to the novel electrolytes, organic materials, and innovative chemistries for batteries. This issue is inspired by the work of Michel Armand, Emeritus Researcher at French CNRS, and presently working at CIC-Energigune in Spain and at Deakin University in Australia. Armand, after ushering the intercalation concept, has led the community with outstanding and inspiring contributions to the field of battery electrochemistry with major industrial applications. Armand’s most important renown findings are solid state polymer electrolytes for Li Metal Polymer batteries now commercialized, new highly conductive salt families like LiTFSI (commercialized) and LiFSI for advanced electrolytes, and carbon-nanopainting of LiFePO4 leading to wide-scale commercialization of this olivine in EV and grid storage batteries.
