The paywall to the ECS Digital Library on IOPscience is down while ECS participates in its seventh International Open Access Week. Over 171,000 journal and magazine articles and meeting abstracts are free and accessible to everyone through October 30.
ECS is excited to share that starting on January 1, 2023, all researchers affiliated with the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), one of the largest universities in Mexico and Latin America, will be able to read ECS content and publish open access in ECS journals at no direct cost to the author. ECS’s publishing partner, IOP Publishing (IOPP), has reached an unlimited transformative agreement with UNAM, which furthers the mission of open science and removes financial barriers that many authors face in their desire to publish their work open access.
ECS Booth, Tuesday, October 11, 1830-1930h EDT
Stop by and visit with Dr. Peter Mascher at the 242nd ECS Meeting. He will be at the “Meet the Editors” event at the ECS Booth to answer your questions on journal processes and discuss editorial opportunities and the vision for ECS Publications’ growth—as well as his own research. Dr. Mascher is Technical Editor for the Journal of Solid State Science and Technology in the Dielectric Science and Materials topical interest area.
Meet Dr. Ingrid Milošev at the 242nd ECS Meeting “Meet the Editors” event. Dr. Milošev has been Associate Editor for the Corrosion Science and Technology section of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society since April 2022. She is Head of the Department of Physical and Organic Chemistry at the Jožef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where she has worked since 1987. Dr. Milošev received a BSc in Chemical Technology in 1986 from the University of Zagreb and a PhD in Chemistry in 1993 from the University of Ljubljana. Her interest in corrosion protection includes corrosion inhibitors, sol-gel coatings, conversion coatings, and inorganic coatings. She published almost 200 papers in peer-reviewed journals and nine book chapters. Her work has been cited over 10,000 times, with an h-index of 53. She completed almost 400 reviews for different journals.
Meet Professor Trisha L. Andrew at the 242nd ECS Meeting “Meet the Editors” event. Dr. Andrews is an Associate Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She directs the Wearable Electronics Lab, a multi-disciplinary research team that creates electronic devices on unconventional substrates, such as textiles and living plants, using chemical vapor deposition of soft electronic materials and polymers. Dr. Andrews received her PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2011, and then started her career as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Electrical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her unconventional training in the disparate fields of synthetic organic chemistry and microelectronic device fabrication inform her unique problem-solving skills and varied research interests. She is a David and Lucille Packard Foundation Fellow, National Academy of Sciences Kavli Fellow, Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator, L’Oréal USA For Women in Science Fellow, 3M Nontenured Faculty Award winner, and was named as one Forbes “30 Under 30” Innovators in Energy.
Meet Professor Perla B. Balbuena at the 242nd ECS Meeting “Meet the Editors” event. She obtained the following degrees in chemical engineering: BS from Universidad Tecnologica Nacional, Argentina; MSc from the University of Pennsylvania; and PhD from the University of Texas at Austin. Prof. Balbuena was appointed Assistant Professor and then Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina from 1997-2004, then full Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University in 2004. There she currently holds the Mike O’Connor Chair I with joint appointments in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Department of Chemistry. Her research focuses on first-principles computational materials design, with emphasis in interfacial phenomena for battery and electrocatalysis materials and processes. Dr. Balbuena has done pioneering work in computational analysis of lithium ion batteries, advanced battery technologies, and fuel cell materials, and has also investigated materials for CO2 capture and electrocatalysis. Dr. Balbuena has published 338 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals and co-edited five books in her areas of specialization. Her work has been cited ~19,500 times (h-index 71) according to Google Scholar. Dr. Balbuena was elected Fellow of The Electrochemical Society (2022), American Institute of Chemical Engineers (2020), and American Association for the Advancement of Science (2013). Learn more.
While at the 242nd ECS Meeting, meet Dr. Rohan Akolkar, an ECS Associate Editor for the Journal of The Electrochemical Society Electrochemical/Electroless Deposition topical interest area, at the “Meet the Editors” event at the ECS booth. He can answer your questions on journal processes and discuss editorial opportunities and the vision for ECS Publications’ growth—as well as his exciting research.
