IEEE Xplore Digital Library Expands Options and Features
IEEE, the technical professional association, has launched new features for the IEEE Xplore digital library that expands subscription options and adds increased value to content and search results. Highlights of the recent update include the following:
New IEEE Standards Dictionary Online: a single, complete source of 39,000 IEEE standards terms and definitions presented in HTML format. IEEE Standards Dictionary Online is included with online subscriptions to IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL), All Inclusive Standards, All Power & Energy Standards, All Information Technology Standards, and All Telecommunications Standards. It is also available as a stand-alone subscription.
“Cited-by” links now appear in all journal article abstracts, including articles from other publishers: IEEE Xplore journal article abstracts have been enhanced to show a listing of all articles that have cited the subject document. This enhancement is the result of IEEE's participation in the CrossRef Cited-by Linking program.
References for IEEE conference papers: To provide more complete abstract records for conference content, IEEE has partnered with third parties to add reference information to conference paper abstracts in IEEE Xplore.
IEEE Index Terms: IEEE has developed a comprehensive thesaurus that includes index terms that map to individual documents in IEEE Xplore. The new IEEE Index Terms appear on all abstract pages for journals and conference papers.
