More IEEE Content
CASE subscribes to IEEE Xplore and thus has access to this new content as described in the following IEEE announcement.
The IEEE this week made available to its online subscribers the earliest issues of its first technology journal, dating back to 1913.
Currently known as "Proceedings of the IEEE," the journal was titled "The Proceedings of the IRE" when it premiered in January of 1913.
The IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers) was one of two predecessor organizations which merged to form the IEEE in 1963.
This week's update brings the first seven years of the title online (1913 - 1919). "Proceedings of the IEEE" issues from 1963 forward were previously available online through the IEEE Xplore digital library. Issues from later years will follow in the coming months.
Papers in the first issue included "A Discussion on Experimental Tests of the Radiation Law for Radio Oscillators," "High Tension Insulators for Radio-Communication," and "Recent Developments in the Work of the Federal Telegraph Company."
"IEEE has made a commitment to digitizing our entire journal backfile, along with past editions of many of our conference publications," said Barbara H. Lange, Director, IEEE Publications Product Line Management and Business Development. "This is a small part of a two-year plan to bring our historic, scholarly content to new generations of researchers and practitioners."
IEEE will continue to digitize the historic backfile of its journals over the coming months.
