IOP Publishing (IOPP) and The Electrochemical Society’s partnership is setting records!

IOPP recently celebrated its millionth article, reached in part, due to ECS’s publishing partnership with IOPP which went into effect this year. ECS’s move to their online publishing platform, IOPscience, brought over more than 150,000 papers, helping IOPP achieve the extraordinary achievement. (more…)

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…)

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.
