Newswise — Pennington, NJ – The Electrochemical Society (ECS) seeks nominations for the founding Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of ECS Sensors Plus, a brand new journal being launched in 2021. The EIC, along with the Editorial Board, ensures the sleek operation and success of the Journal. Nomination submissions are accepted as of May 18, 2021, through the EIC Sensors Plus Nominations Form (obtainable as of May 18) and should be acquired by June 17, 2021. Self nominations are inspired.

ECS Sensors Plus is a multidisciplinary, open entry journal that gives a global platform to publish high-quality impactful articles and promote scholarly communication and interactions amongst scientists, engineers, and technologists whose main pursuits are centered on mechanisms, supplies, buildings, properties, efficiency, and characterization of sensing and detection units and methods, together with sensor arrays, networks, and actuators. The objective of ECS Sensors Plus, as a one-stop store journal for sensors, is to advance the elemental science and understanding of sensors and detection applied sciences for environment friendly monitoring and management of commercial processes and the setting, and enhancing high quality of life and human well being.

The best candidate possesses:

The EIC’s time period formally begins in late 2021/early 2022, when the primary submissions are anticipated. However, work to discovered the Journal begins instantly upon the ECS Board of Directors’ approval of the EIC which is anticipated in late June, early July 2021. The ECS Sensors Plus EIC is anticipated to serve within the place for an preliminary time period of three years, renewable for extra phrases as much as a most of 12 years of consecutive service.

Initial tasks because the founding EIC embody:

Routine and ongoing tasks embody:

The nomination package deal features a transient biography, together with a listing of the candidate’s editorial expertise (200-word most); the candidate’s full CV, together with editorial expertise; and a  assertion of curiosity describing the nominee’s imaginative and prescient for the Journal and their means to commit the requisite time to comprehend that imaginative and prescient (500-word most).

The choice course of is run by an EIC Candidate Evaluation Committee. Comprised of chosen members of the ECS Sensors Division Executive Committee and the ECS Publications Subcommittee, the EIC Candidate Evaluation Committee evaluates all nominations and recommends to the Publications Subcommittee which candidates advance to the second spherical of analysis.

Second spherical candidates are interviewed (in individual or nearly) by the total Publications Subcommittee. The Publications Subcommittee selects a single candidate to advance to the ECS Technical Affairs Committee and the ECS Board of Directors, for ultimate approval, in that order.

EIC help for strategic, administrative, and promotional actions is from ECS management and employees and extends to the ECS Sensors Plus Editorial Board. The EIC works in live performance with the ECS Publications Subcommittee and senior employees (Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer and Director of Publications) to set the strategic course for the Journal, oversee the general well being of Sensors Plus, and be certain that the Journal is successfully positioned and promoted inside ECS’s present portfolio of titles and within the broader aggressive panorama.

The ECS Publications Department manages all points of the manuscript processing circulation: submission, peer evaluation, modifying, and prepping for publication within the ECS Digital Library on IOP Science. In addition, the publications workforce handles all monetary transactions for the Journal; offers the EIC with important logistical help (assembly scheduling and internet hosting, detailed stories on utilization, editor efficiency, time-to-publication, and many others., and different duties as wanted/doable); and conducts in-depth, ongoing coaching with the EIC and Editorial Board on successfully utilizing ScholarOne, ECS’s manuscript and peer-review platform.

The publications employees, at the side of ECS’s Community Engagement workforce and IOPP’s Marketing Department, takes the lead on conceiving, producing, and disseminating advertising and promotional collateral for the Journal. While EIC is a part of this workforce, it is a staff-led effort, leaving the EIC useful time and assets to concentrate on the technical lifetime of the Journal.

EIC remuneration is within the type of a stipend which is topic to the situations of the ECS annual budgeting course of.
