Sodium-based battery development

Submission status
Submission deadline

Sodium-based batteries are potential alternatives to lithium-based batteries with possible advantages such as abundance of sodium, competitive cost, drop-in compatibility with existing lithium-based battery infrastructure, and suitability for grid-scale energy storage. Recognizing the inherent challenges and ongoing intense research in this area, the editors of Nature Communications, Communications Chemistry, Communications Materials, and Scientific Reports welcome submissions of primary research demonstrating significant development in all areas of non-aqueous and aqueous sodium-based batteries from design, fundamental understanding, and application.

To submit, see the participating journals
