History of “Electrochemistry

1933. 7 A former journal of Electrochemistry; “Denki Kagaku(電氣化學)”, was launched (Vol.1, No.1). An official title of the journal in English was “The Journal of The Electrochemical Association of Japan”.
1947.12 The journal was renamed “The Journal of The Electrochemical Society of Japan” in English (Vol.15, No. 9-12).
1958.1 The journal title “電氣化學(Denki Kagaku)” changed from an old character style to a current character style; “電気化学”.
1958.3 “Journal of The Electrochemical Society of Japan (Overseas Supplementary Edition)” was firstly issued as an alternate version including English abstracts.
1961.6 The journal title in Japanese had been renamed “電気化学および工業物理化学(Denki kagaku oyobi kōgyō butsuri kagaku)”(vol.29, No.6). The abbreviated name “Denki Kagaku” continued to be used until 1998.
1970.1 “Denki kagaku oyobi kōgyō butsuri kagaku (Denki Kagaku)” began to accept English papers, and the “Journal of The Electrochemical Society of Japan” was evolved and merged to “Denki Kagaku” (Vol.38, No.1).
1999.1 “Denki kagaku oyobi kōgyō butsuri kagaku (Denki Kagaku)” was renamed “Electrochemsitry” in English (Vol.67, No.1). The ISSN code was updated.
2012.1 “Electrochemistry” has been issued in J-Stage as an Online Edition (Vol.80, No.1).
2018.1 The printed version of “Electrochemistry” was suspended. The online version includes only original academic and technical papers and is published bimonthly (Vol.86, No.1~).
2018.3 “Denki Kagaku(電気化学)” was newly established as a quarterly separated volume for the purpose of mutual exchange of academic activities and information among society members (Vol.86, Spring).
