Purchasing Information

PRiME 2020 ECS Transactions issues are available to browse and read in the ECS Digital Library on IOPscience. Full-issues may be purchased through the ECS Online Store. After the meeting, print-on-demand softcover editions will be available through ECS’s print-on-demand vendor, Curran Associates.

Proceedings articles found on ECSarXiv are free to read and download.


How do I publish a proceedings paper if my symposium is not publishing an ECST issue?

If you are interested in publishing research related to your presentation, but your symposium has not planned to publish any proceedings, authors can submit a preprint to ECSarXiv, ECS’s preprint service. Be sure to tag your submission with “PRiME 2020” to make sure it’s linked to other meeting content! Find out more, or submit now.

Can I still submit to an ECS journal if I publish in ECST?

Because ECS Transactions is not formally peer-reviewed, there is no conflict should an author wish to submit their work to both ECST and an ECS journal. While the expectation is that six months is sufficient time to revise an abstract and/or ECST paper to meet the stricter standards of the journals, there is no deadline for submission with ECS’s continuous journal publication model.

Submissions to the journals must be made using the online submission system. Click here for author instructions and to submit your manuscript.
