  • IEEE XPlore reaches 3 million documents

     The IEEE Xplore digital library recently added its three millionth document to its digital library.  “Protecting Smart Grid Automation Systems Against Cyberattacks,” which appears in the current issue of IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid, reflects a sample of the diverse technical disciplines represented in the collection. It took five years to grow the IEEE Xplore repository from one million to two million documents; and less than two-and-a-half years to reach this latest milestone.
    According to IEEE Publications Staff Executive Anthony Durniak, the significant growth of the IEEE Xplore digital library is a direct reflection of the pace of today’s multi-disciplinary engineering and technology innovations, and the fact that authors increasingly come from all corners of the world.

  • IEEE Xplore redesign

    The IEEE have just launched a redesign of their IEEE Xplore Digital Library site www.ieee.org/ieeexplore.  Features of the redesign include:

    • A “what’s popular” feature in the Quick Links box at the bottom of the screen to show you which research is making the headlines.
    • Refine results feature – once you have carried out a search you will see a box at the left of the screen where you can pick out particular subjects, authors, publication types or organizations from your search results.
    • Expanded “sort by” options allow you to sort the newest or oldest first or to sort by publication title.
    • If you register you can set your own display preferences, save searches and set up e-mail alerts to let you know when new content of interest is added to the database.
    • A new browse page gives you the option to browse publications by subject to get a feel for what is available.

    If you have any questions about IEEE Xplore please contact Alasdair Montgomery or Susan Glen scieng@swansea.ac.uk
