More on impact ›
This section aims to publish cutting-edge research related to fuel cells within materials science and engineering, physics, chemistry and electrochemistry.
We encourage the submission of original research and topical reviews emphasizing scientific or engineering perspectives, experimental or theoretical approaches, covering all issues related to fuel cells.
Topics of interest to the Fuel Cells section include, but are not limited to;
Types of fuel cells:
· alkaline fuel cells,
· direct carbon fuel cells,
· microbial fuel cells,
· phosphoric acid fuel cells,
· proton exchange membrane fuel cells,
· solid oxide fuel cells.
Allied electrochemical membrane-based technologies:
· steam electrolysis, partial oxidation of hydrocarbons, synthesis of ammonia,
· separation of hydrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide or nitrogen oxides.
· synthesis, processing and characterization of electrolytes, electrodes, interconnects, sealants, catalysts, barrier layers, substrates for fuel cell and membrane applications.
· engineering of fuel cell device components, singular devices and integrated systems (e.g. microtubular, tubular, corrugated, plane, single chamber, electrode supported or electrolyte supported fuel cells),
· testing of fuel cell constituents and entire cells, cinluding endurance and accelerated ageing,
· production and recycling technologies for fuel cells,
· fuel processing.

Fuel Cells welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Fuel Cells, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Fuel Cells will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Energy Research.
