Elsevier Announces the Launch of a New Journal: Current Opinion in Electrochemistry

Amsterdam, July 14, 2016

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and solutions, announces the launch of a new journal: Current Opinion in Electrochemistry. The journal is the latest addition to Elsevier’s Current Opinion titles, a portfolio of 19 leading journals in life sciences and related fields.

Current Opinion in Electrochemistry is a systematic review journal with the aim to provide scientists with a unique and educational platform to keep up-to-date with the expanding volume of information published in the field. Section editors will invite top experts to write short reviews on current advances in their field.

Talking about the new journal, Professor Richard G. Compton from Oxford University noted: “Electrochemical science is currently an intensively active area providing a basis for diverse applications ranging from chemical sensors to energy transformation technology whilst having fundamental importance in areas as varied as biology or electron transfer theory. Current Opinion in Electrochemistry will be the first journal devoted to providing review articles in the subject and will greatly assist all who work in the field.”

Professor Compton is joined by fellow editor Professor Hasuck Kim, Chair Professor of Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST), Daegu, South Korea.

“Elsevier is ideally positioned to launch such a systematic review journal as we publish 85% of the 5% top-cited papers in electrochemistry”, said Nicolette van Dijk, Senior Publisher at Elsevier. “Therefore, we have the required network of high profile people and critical mass.”
