JMR Call for Papers

Focus Issue: Understanding and Mitigating Materials Instabilities in Electrochemical Systems
Submission Deadline: October 1, 2020
JMR publishes Materials stability in the non-equilibrium environment of an electrochemical energy storage system is a critical issue for device operation and reliability. The shelf life of primary and rechargeable cell chemistries, together with the cycle life of rechargeable systems, are specifically dependent on the mechanical, crystallographic, morphological, and chemical stability of the electrodes and the separators.

JMR Call for Papers

Focus Issue: 3D-Printed Electrodes for Energy Storage
Submission Deadline: November 1, 2020
This JMR Focus Issue will present a broad range of topics covering the fabrication, characterization, and applications of 3D-printed materials for energy storage.
