New features make it even easier to access innovative research
Designed for quick navigation and discovery, the new features in the IEEE Xplore digital library help you to find the content you need. Easy-to-use discovery and search tools, enhanced abstract pages, and other convenient features have now been incorporated into this already powerful interface.

Searching for authors in IEEE Xplore is now more powerful, precise, and time efficient. Since authors publish under different name variations, it can be difficult to find a complete set of their publications. IEEE recently completed a disambiguation project to link and normalize the various versions of an author's name in IEEE Xplore, delivering more accurate search results.
• New interface: Select "Author Search" to reveal specific search fields for First Name, Middle Initial, and Last Name.
• Improved results: Searching for Rob W. Smith will also retrieve articles under other variations, such as R. Smith or Robert Smith.
• Filter and refine results: Refine your search to retrieve any articles associated with that author name, regardless of the original name.
Authors: This project is still in beta form and your feedback on this new feature is appreciated. If you notice any discrepancies in your author listing or articles attributed to you, please contact IEEE.
Many IEEE Xplore articles can now be viewed on-screen in HTML as well as in the original PDF format. A major milestone was recently achieved with more than 500,000 HTML documents now available, and more than two million projected by the end of the project.
With a dynamic new design, HTML-formatted documents redefine how IEEE publications are displayed online. Presenting cutting-edge IEEE articles in an elegant, state-of-the-art HTML layout provides a richer and more interactive research experience.
With this design you will be able to:
• Scan and interpret articles in under 60 seconds using "Quick Preview."
• Navigate between sections of long articles with intuitive floating navigation.
• Effortlessly explore text, figures, equations, and multimedia files.
• Quickly view and copy mathematical equations, expressions, and formulas.
• Enhance your research with recommendations for related articles.
My Projects allows users to create personal project folders within IEEE Xplore to help organize documents by project or topic. Save documents to an unlimited number of projects, personalize with project descriptions, and add notes and tags to individual articles as you save them to projects. Sign in with your personal IEEE Account to access this feature.
Now you can easily download search result data to a CSV file. You will find a new button named Export Results on the search results page that allows you to download up to 2,000 records to a CSV file, which will include over 30 fields of metadata for each record.
Abstracts for IEEE Journal articles as far back as 1929, now include a list of all articles that have cited the document from any publisher participating in the CrossRef Cited-By Linking program. Simply link to the CrossRef site to find the listed article.
An IEEE Account allows you to sign up for saved search and table of contents alerts, set your personal preferences, and take advantage of enhanced features like search history. There is no need to re-register if you have an existing IEEE Account.
Expanded filter shows only content included in your subscription
IEEE has expanded the popular search filter that allows users to "show only content in my subscription" to all IEEE Xplore subscriptions. You can find this filter on the search results page and in Advanced Search.
See a history for Top 100 Documents Downloaded by month
Browse the most popular search terms and top downloaded documents of each month and now, see an archive of top downloaded documents from previous months.
New Institutional Sign-in link
To clearly differentiate between the institutional Sign-In and personal Sign-In areas, you will find an institutional Sign-In link next to the IEEE Xplore brand as well as a personal Sign-In link at the top right corner of the page.
See at a glance what content is included in your subscription
Easily identify what content is included with your subscription. New icons now appear in search results and on table of contents pages next to documents to which you have full-text access.
