On the request of Prof. Shi-Gang Sun, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Electrochemistry, I served as the guest editor for this International Special Issue on Current Electrochemistry. The Journal of Electrochemistry was founded in 1995 associated to the Chinese Chemical Society just before the 46th Annual meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE). Prof. Zhao-Wu Tian was the founder of the journal and had been serving as the Editor-in-Chief until 2010. The journal is known for high quality scientific papers related to the electrochemical science, techniques and engineering, and is well-known in Electrochemistry Community in China. However, the journal is less distributed internationally, mainly due to the language barrier. From 2010, the editorial office constructed a very professional editorial and online journal system, in both Chinese and English version. The English abstract section is significantly expanded so that the main points and progresses reported by the published papers could be understood by readers of the whole scientific community. To further promote the impact of the journal in the international electrochemistry field, we decided to organize this international special issue. We invited some internationally known electrochemists from either abroad or domestic, that have been studying, working in Xiamen University or have been collaborating with or visiting Xiamen University, a very dynamic electrochemistry center in China. This special issue contains 14 contributions from 6 countries and covers topics from interfacial electrochemistry, theoretical electrochemistry, electrochemical sensor, and electrochemical energy.
