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.
