All ECS Articles. All Free. All Week.

ECS is set to participate in its sixth International Open Access Week, an annual event organized by SPARC, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition. From October 19-26, ECS takes down the paywall to the entire ECS Digital Library on IOPscience, making over 160,000 scientific articles and abstracts free and accessible to everyone.

This year’s theme, “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion,” supports ECS’s long-term vision to Free the Science by providing access to all in order to further advance research. ECS publications showcase research that directly addresses the sustainability of the planet. Electrochemistry and solid state science continue to hold the keys to innovation in renewable energy, biomedical applications, water and sanitation, communications, transportation, technology, infrastructure, and beyond.

The ECS Digital Library is home to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society, the flagship journal of ECS, published continuously since 1902, and to the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and TechnologyECS Electrochemistry LettersECS Solid State LettersElectrochemical and Solid-State LettersECS TransactionsECS Meeting Abstracts, and Interface.

To enhance readers’ experiences when accessing ECS content, the Society moved the ECS Digital Library to IOPscience, IOP Publishing’s platform, in January 2020. IOP Publishing is known for meeting the particular needs of each of its individual partners, which ECS feels is an important step in the Society’s journey towards fulfilling the aim of Free the Science.

While Open Access Week 2020 runs through October 25, ECS has extended the week to Monday, October 26, providing a bonus day of free content access.

Help ECS celebrate this annual event by visiting the ECS Digital Library from October 19-26 for unrestricted access to over 160,000 scientific articles and abstracts.
