The Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) has been in continuous publication since 1902 under various titles. The journal’s precursor, Transactions of The American Electrochemical Society, published 96 volumes between 1902 and 1949. It was not until 1948 that the Journal of The Electrochemical Society, as it is known today, began publication.
Although JES was originally meant to include only papers presented at Society meetings, in 1952 a mix of unsolicited, as well as meeting papers, began to be published together. Beginning in 1967, JES was divided into 3 sections: Electrochemical Science and Technology, Solid-State Science and Technology, and Reviews and News. The Reviews and News section would later break off to begin Interface in 1992, and the Solid-State Science and Technology section became the ECS Journal of Solid-State Science and Technology (JSS) in 2012.
