Reproducible research for accelerating new battery technologies

New battery technologies are frequently reported, with breakthroughs in materials and performance determining where research efforts are placed. It is therefore vital that data related to materials synthesis, electrolyte/electrode fabrication, performance characterization, cell format etc. is reliable, repeatable, and ideally performed according to standard protocols. This will enable promising new technologies to be identified, developed and scaled-up more quickly.

This Collection shares opinions and research results for establishing standards and protocols that will enable reliable and repeatable reporting of battery research.
