Publishing Opportunities
ECS Transactions
ECS will publish a volume of ECS Transactions (ECST) devoted to papers from IMLB 2014. ECST is an online collection of full-text proceedings papers from ECS meetings and ECS-sponsored meetings. With the largest digital collection of electrochemistry and solid state related proceedings, ECST is a high-quality venue for authors and an excellent resource for researchers. The papers appearing in ECST are reviewed to ensure that submissions meet generally-accepted scientific standards. The opening date for IMLB 2014 ECST submissions is June 23, 2014, at which time all corresponding authors will receive instructions on how to submit their paper to the ECST website. The deadline for all manuscript submissions is July 25, 2014.

Journal of The Electrochemical Society and ECS Electrochemistry Letters
Meeting attendees are urged to submit to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) or ECS Electrochemistry Letters (EEL). Selected IMLB papers will be published in a special issue of JES. Visit the ECS journals submissions site: Please be sure to indicate in the cover letter if a submission is intended to be part of the IMLB 2014 Focus Issue. JES, published continuously since 1902, maintains the highest standards of peer review, as do all of the ECS journals. JES and EEL follow a rapid publication model with individual articles published online every day, with full final citation details. The ECS journals have the shortest lag time from acceptance to publication among the journals in their fields. Authors submitting to JES may choose to have their articles published as Open Access. Visit the Open Access page on the ECS website for more information.
