Publish Now with ECS

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).

ECS Journals

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…)

ECS recognizes the importance of expanding opportunities for publishing in ECS journals as the science continues to evolve. The Society recently made changes to the sensors topical interest area (TIA). Submissions to the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) are now accepted along with the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES).

“With the rapid growth experienced by the sensor community, and the gradual blurring of boundaries between solid state and electrochemical sensing strategies, it makes eminent sense to have a single TIA for this topic for both journals,” said Krishnan Rajeshwar, JSS Editor-in-Chief, and Robert Savinell, JES Editor-in-Chief.

During International Open Access Week 2019 (October 21-27), an event organized by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), the Society took down the paywall to the ECS Digital Library for the fifth consecutive year, making over 151,000 scientific articles and abstracts free and accessible to everyone. The event facilitated record-breaking surges in access of ECS content.

Record-breaking surges in access

Open Access Week 2019  drew over 38,850 new visitors to the ECS Digital Library. New and old visitors downloaded content at an incredible rate. During October 2019, the Society’s active subscription-based publications amassed a total of 342,997 full-text downloads—16 percent more downloads than in October 2017 (when the annual event was last held), and the second highest download rate during a single month in the history of the ECS Digital Library.   (more…)

ECS Journal of Solid State Science and TechnologyTo recognize the innovative research gaining attention across the diverse span of its topical interest areas, the Society highlights the top five most-read journal articles in each area during each quarter of the year.

The most-read ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology articles by topical interest area during the second quarter of 2019 (April through June) are listed below.

Highlights are based on articles published since January 1, 2017.

Articles marked OA are open access.

Submission Deadline: July 31, 2019

Submit your manuscripts to the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) Focus Issue on Recent Advances in Wide Bandgap III-Nitride Devices and Solid State Lighting: A Tribute to Isamu Akasaki.

About Isamu Akasaki

Isamu Akasaki has devoted much of his research career to the development and advancement of efficient GaN light-emitting diodes via a metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy growth process. This approach led to the discovery of p-type GaN with magnesium doping and ultimately to the invention of the first GaN p-n junction blue/ultraviolet LED in 1989. Subsequent work by Akasaki’s group led to advances in conductivity control of n-type GaN and related alloys by doping with silicon, allowing for the use of hetero structures and quantum wells in the design and fabrication of even more efficient p-n junction structures and the development of wide bandgap III-Nitride semiconductors for solid state lighting and related technologies. These groundbreaking efforts were recognized in 2014 with the Nobel Prize in Physics. (more…)

The Electrochemical Society has some exciting news! ECS has selected IOP Publishing (IOPP) as its journals publishing partner.

Starting in 2020, IOPP will partner with ECS in the publication of the Journal of the Electrochemical Society and the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology and the hosting of ECS Transactions, ECS Meeting Abstracts, and Interface as well as the hosting of the archives for ECS’s retired publications—ECS Electrochemistry Letters, ECS Solid State Letters, Electrochemical and Solid State Letters, and ECS Proceedings Volumes.

Christopher Jannuzzi, executive director and CEO of ECS, said: “ECS has a 117+ year reputation for creating outstanding, peer-reviewed periodicals, conference proceedings, and magazines. We have a long-standing commitment to ensure the technical quality of the works published, as well as the integrity and validity of the peer review our community provides. (more…)
