Special Issue in Electrochimica Acta

The aim of this Special Issue of Electrochimica Acta is to take the occasion of Hyceltec 2017 to publish high quality papers relevant to electrochemistry, pertinent to the general themes of the Special Issue (contributions may not correspond exactly to the presentations given at Hyceltec 2017, but they should anyway be closely related to them), original and in line with the high standards of the Journal.
The Managing Guest Editor of this SI will be Verónica de Zea Bermudez.

According to the new procedure recently introduced by the Publisher, this Special Issue will be published online only. Virtual Special Issues (VSIs) avoid publication delays. As a paper is accepted, it is treated by the Production as a regular paper and is immediately published in a regular issue. At the same time the paper appears on the web in ScienceDirect in a specific location of Electrochimica Acta.

Once abstracts have been collected, a survey will be conducted by the Guest Editor to produce a list of potential contributors to build the Special Issue. Prospective authors will be contacted to get their agreement in advance of the event.

Submission of contributions
Contributions should conform to the instructions of the online Guide for Authors. The required scientific standards are the same as for regular papers.
The length of papers is expected to be that of standard manuscripts submitted to Electrochimica Acta, i.e., UP TO an average of 10 PRINTED pages, corresponding approximately to 30 TYPED pages (12 pt, double spacing) including figures (max 2 per page). Critical reviews may be allowed with pre-agreement of the Managing Guest Editors.
Submitted special papers will be processed online in the office of the Special Issue Editors with the collaboration of the Guest Editor. The journal’s submission, review and decision process will be managed entirely online using the Elsevier Editorial System (EES).
