ChemElectroChem is a top-ranking electrochemistry journal for primary research papers and critical secondary information from authors across the world. The journal covers the entire scope of pure and applied electrochemistry, the latter encompassing (among others) energy applications, electrochemistry at interfaces (including surfaces), photoelectrochemistry and bioelectrochemistry.

ChemElectroChem is published on behalf of Chemistry Europe. The Chemistry Europe family comprises: Angewandte Chemie, Chemistry—A European Journal, European Journal of Organic Chemistry, European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, ChemPhysChem, ChemBioChem, ChemMedChem, ChemCatChem, ChemSusChem, ChemPlusChem, ChemElectroChem and ChemistryOpen and the magazine ChemistryViews

ChemElectroChem is edited by Dr. Greta Heydenrych, the editor of ChemPhysChem and ChemPhotoChem. All contributions are published online, with the additional option of Accepted Article – publication of the accepted version as soon as possible after acceptance. Color is free and print on demand is available. Authors who wish to make their articles available to non-subscribers may also use the OnlineOpen option provided by the journal.

The Editorial Board is chaired by Professors Bing-Wei Mao (Xiamen University, China), Wolfgang Schuhmann (Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany) and Jean-Marie Tarascon (Université de Picardie, France).

"I am personally convinced that a journal with these goals is timely and will play an important role in bringing together different aspects of the broad interdisciplinary approaches based on electrochemistry", said Co-Chairman Schuhmann. "I am very curious and excited about this new possibility to publish high-quality electrochemical research papers".

Professor Mao is also looking forward to the new journal. "ChemElectroChem offers the most focused platform to publish the latest achievements in electrochemistry", she said. In a statement, Mao also pointed out that "electrochemistry is distinct, with charged interfaces that universally exist in nature and artificial devices, and shares a common physical and chemical basis with many other subjects, making it a truly interdisciplinary science and technology".

Redox reactions play an important role in life sciences, catalysis, corrosion, photovoltaics, and electrochemical storage, says Co-Chairman Tarason. "These various scientific research disciplines are thus strongly related and we could define the field of electrochemistry as a branch of chemistry that has the precision of physics and the in-depth view of materials science. In this context, having a dedicated journal bridging these different disciplines is appealing and this is what our aim has been in creating ChemElectroChem", he said.
