About the book

Because sodium is abundant in nature compared to lithium and cost-effective, Li-ion batteries are being replaced by Na-ion batteries. However, the ability of battery components to improve battery performance is still the biggest problem. Also, sodium has a larger atomic radius than lithium, it has inevitably limited its practical applications, created problems of low electrochemical reaction kinetics, and reduced cyclic stability for sodium-ion batteries. Although the design of new materials, the porosity, and 3D-printing of electrodes with applying structural engineering/modification and especially the solid-state production of electrolyte provide serious benefits to improve the Na-ion battery performance, it can still be said that it doesn’t give the desired outcome.

This book aims to provide the most up-to-date and latest approaches to solving these problems, as well as to provide new solutions that may come across in the coming period. The systematic presentation of the roles and effects of effective strategies will also make the study interesting.

Publishing process

Book initiated and editor appointed

Date completed: March 4th 2022

Applications to edit the book are assessed and a suitable editor is selected, at which point the process begins.

Chapter proposals submitted and reviewed

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: July 4th 2022

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: September 22nd 2022

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: November 21st 2022

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Dajana Jusic

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, copyediting 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.
