IOP announces a significant investment in the range of ECS Digital Library on IOP Science features. The investment is part of ECS’s and IOP’s commitment to ensuring the platform’s functionality, accessibility, performance, and security. In the coming weeks, to modernise and improve the platform, a small number of features will be temporarily unavailable with some withdrawn completely where usage is low or alternatives are available. This is necessary to replace old technologies with modern, secure, scalable cloud services with improved functioning and reliability. (more…)
Print-on-Demand Interface Issues Now AvailablePosted on December 20, 2021 by Adrian Plummer
For over thirty years, The Electrochemical Society Interface magazine has been the voice of ECS members. The Society’s for-members by-members publication has shared announcements of great achievements, awards, and milestones; technical information; and hot topics from the community—including announcements of losses and memorials. For years, ECS members enjoyed having Interface reach their mailboxes and rest on their coffee tables. However, the organization has grown and its membership spans the globe. The importance of minimizing one’s carbon footprint has risen in criticality. Therefore, as the organization seeks to expand its reach digitally, Interface will no longer be printed, packed, and shipped to members. It will be available exclusively on the ECS Digital Library.

Call for Papers: The Electrochemical Society Welcomes two new Journals to its Family: ECS Advances and ECS Sensors PlusPosted on October 26, 2021 by Adrian Plummer
ECS Sensors Plus and ECS Advances
The Electrochemical Society is excited to announce the addition of two new gold open access journals to its family of high-quality publications!
ECS Sensors Plus
ECS Sensors Plus is a multidisciplinary, open-access journal that provides an international platform to publish high-quality impactful articles, and promote scholarly communication and interactions among scientists, engineers, and technologists whose primary interests are focused on mechanisms, materials, structures, properties, performance, and characterization of sensing and detection devices and systems, including sensor arrays, networks, and actuators. The goal of ECS Sensors Plus, as a one-stop shop journal for sensors, is to advance the fundamental science and understanding of sensors and detection technologies for efficient monitoring and control of industrial processes and the environment, and improving quality of life and human health.

JES and JSS Joint Focus Issue: In Honor of John B. Goodenough – A Centenarian MilestonePosted on October 21, 2021 by Adrian Plummer
During his ECS Masters Interview at the 2016 ECS PRiME Meeting, John Goodenough vulnerably disclosed that as a child, he had dyslexia and could not read like others his age. He described leaving home at the age of 12 for an affluent boarding school as a struggling scholarship student. Stories were shared about life events that led John on the path of science and discovery, as well as the individuals who supported and guided him along the way. And when asked about the dissemination of scientific content, John imparted his belief that scholarly societies are essentially in the business of fostering partnerships to serve the community at large. He emphasized the role of societies in creating space to convene the community to further scientific advancement.
The editorial teams of the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology and Journal of The Electrochemical Society have come together in the spirit of this belief. They are publishing a focus issue comprised of 80+ select invited papers celebrating and honoring the life, legacy, and contributions of beloved professor and longtime ECS member Dr. John B. Goodenough.
The full issue is scheduled to be available in May 2022—just two months before John’s 100th birthday.
ECS Digital Library Paywall Come Down During 2021 International Open Access WeekPosted on October 13, 2021 by Adrian Plummer
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 25-31, ECS will take down the paywall to the entire ECS Digital Library, making over 165,000 scientific articles and abstracts free and accessible to everyone.
This year’s theme, “It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity,” supports ECS’s long-term vision of Free the Science by providing access to all in order to further advance the research—and echoes the Society’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in scholarly publication. The research published in ECS’s publications 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.

Quantum Transport in Nanostructures and Molecules: An Introduction to Molecular ElectronicsPosted on May 12, 2021 by Adrian Plummer
New book by Colin J. Lambert published
In March 2021, IOP Publishing published the latest book in their electronics subject area, Quantum Transport in Nanostructures and Molecules: An introduction to molecular electronics by Professor Colin J. Lambert, research professor at Lancaster University, UK.
This book presents a conceptual framework for understanding room-temperature electron and phonon transport through molecules and other quantum objects. It looks at the flow of electricity through molecules at the boundary of physics and chemistry, and introduces molecular electronics for physicists, and quantum transport for chemists.
Professor Lambert is a world leader in the field of single-molecule electronics. He has been a professor at Lancaster since 1990 and in 2010 was awarded a research professorship. He is also a visiting professor in the Materials Department at the University of Oxford, and an elected member of Academia Europaea. (more…)
