Interactive HTML Articles Now Available in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library

Thousands of HTML Articles to Be Added Weekly to Enable Improved Navigation and Interpretation of Research

25 September 2012 – As part of its long-standing commitment to deliver the latest technological research via a feature-rich delivery platform, IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization, is announcing the addition of HTML-formatted articles to the IEEE Xplore digital library. The new design and display format pairs high quality content with on-screen interactivity, providing an enhanced and streamlined experience for researchers and customers.

The new HTML presentation format allows users to engage with and better utilize elements such as figures, equations and multimedia files; quickly scan article contents via a new “Quick Preview” feature; easily navigate through article sections; and see related articles.

A unique “floating” navigation module makes it easy to go through article components such as full-text, references, citations and authors in whatever way the user chooses. A PDF version of the article is still available for download.

The initial focus for the new HTML format is on IEEE journals content from 2001 to the present, beginning with the newest articles. Over 5,000 articles are now available in the new HTML format, rapidly increasing to nearly 200,000 by early 2013. IEEE conferences, magazines, and standards will start to be converted next year.

All IEEE Xplore users can now experience these richer, more interactive HTML-formatted articles. To see an example, view the Proceedings of the IEEE Centennial issue in HTML— now available to all visitors via Open Access.
