ECS Digital Library Paywall Come Down During 2021 International Open Access 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 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.

2021 theme

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.

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.
