About the book

Electrochemical devices for electrical energy storage, so-called batteries, play a significant role in a sustainable world not only because of technical advantages but also for their environmental effects. For instance, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are the key reason for developing portable electronics as well as electric vehicles. Lithium-ion batteries have been developed based on their distinctive advantages, including their high energy density and low maintenance requirements. In addition, other lithium storages such as lithium-air and lithium-sulfur batteries are also the subject of increasing interest as a result of their theoretical high energy densities. Since the storages are multiphysics systems, the developments on different parts should be reviewed. This book intends to provide a comprehensive overview of emerging energy-storage based on lithium. The book will include the recent progress on cathode, anode, electrolyte, and separators for lithium-ion batteries and other lithium storage.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
