IEEE Xplore Upgrade Provides New Tools for Researchers
Access to IEEE Standards, Publications, and Bibliographies Enhanced in IEEE Xplore 2.1
21 July 2005 -- Piscataway, NJ -- IEEE today released several new research options for its IEEE Xplore online delivery platform.
IEEE Xplore is the online delivery system which powers IEEE online subscriptions for organizations and individuals, including collections like the IEEE/IEE Electronic Library. It contains more than 1,100,000 documents from IEEE journals, magazines, transactions, and conferences, all active IEEE standards, and journals and conference proceedings from Europe's Institution for Electrical Engineers (IEE).
"This release of IEEE Xplore 2.1 incorporates feedback that we have received from users since the launch of IEEE Xplore 2.0," said Barbara H.
Lange, IEEE Publications Product Line Management and Business Development.
"The new features enhance the bibliographic information both for individuals and institutional subscribers."
New features available through IEEE Xplore 2.1 include:
* The metadata of all current book titles from Wiley-IEEE Press and Wiley-IEEE Computer Society Press are now available to all users as an optional search criteria. Books located through this search may be purchased through a link to the John Wiley and Sons web site.
* The display of bibliographic information has been enhanced on various pages throughout the site. The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and part numbers (identifies periodicals issues and conference proceedings volumes that have multiple parts) are now displayed on all tables of contents, search results, Abstracts, and AbstractPlus pages.
* Individual IEEE Standards are now available for purchase and immediate download directly through IEEE Xplore.
* A new, downloadable OPAC list of journal and conference details contains the start date, end date, ISBN and ISSN for all titles, and will be updated regularly.
