Join The Electrochemical Society in celebrating the first year of ECS Sensors Plus, the Society’s first Gold Open Access topical journal. Enter your cover art illustration into our 2022 ECS Sensors Plus Cover Art Challenge!

We love our current cover art that reflects the ECS brand—and we also want to capture the opportunity to have our community engage and support the ECS brand.

The competition’s winner receives a one-year ECS Membership and complimentary admission to the 243rd ECS Meeting in Boston, MA. The winning cover will appear on the ECS Sensors Plus home page. (more…)

ECS is proud to announce that as of June 2022—following only its second issue—the Society’s new Gold Open Access Journal ECS Sensors Plus has been accepted for indexing in the Directory for Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The 19-year-old independent index includes almost 17,500 peer-reviewed, open access journals, and supports increasing the “visibility, accessibility, reputation, usage, and impact of quality, peer-reviewed, open access scholarly research journals globally, regardless of discipline, geography or language.”

The Electrochemical Society is proud to announce the inaugural issue of ECS Sensors Plus, the home for all content related to sensors technology. The new journal leads and promotes scholarly communication and interaction among scientists, engineers, and technologists whose primary interests focus on materials, structures, properties, performance, and characterization of sensing and detection devices, methods, and systems, including sensor arrays and networks.

Preparing a sensors manuscript? Make ECS Sensors Plus your publication of choice. Submit your article today to be included in the next issue. ECS Sensors Plus is free to publish and free to read. Article processing charges (APCs) are waived for 2022.

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.

Ajit KhoslaAlmost two years after approving the charter for ECS Sensors Plus (ECS’s new gold open access journal scheduled to begin accepting submission in 2022), The Electrochemical Society Board of Directors approved the appointment of Dr. Ajit Khosla of Yamagata University, Japan, as the Founding Editor-in-Chief (EIC).

Ajit Khosla

Dr. Khosla has been a valued member of ECS for over 11 years, actively engaging with activities to move forward ECS’s mission. His service includes, but is certainly not limited to, Technical Editor of the Sensors Technical Interest Area for the Journal of The Electrochemical Society and ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology; Chair of the ECS Sensors Division; member of the Symposium Planning Advisory Board; Editor of the very popular JES Focus Issue on Sensor Reviews; Editor of the forthcoming JES Focus Issue on Women in Electrochemistry; and he is currently in the editorial stage of a book to be added to the ECS Monograph series in 2022.
