New Features Included in IEEE Xplore

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.

Improved author searches (beta)

HTML layout that provides a richer and more interactive research experienceSearching 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.

HTML full-text articles

HTML layout that provides a richer and more interactive research experienceMany 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.
