With an active portfolio of nearly 1,300 standards and projects under development, IEEE is a leading developer of industry standards in a broad range of technologies that drive the functionality, capabilities, and interoperability of a wide range of products and services, transforming how people live, work, and communicate.
IEEE provides a wide range of quality publications that make the exchange of technical knowledge and information possible among technology professionals. This essential content, categorized below, is delivered through the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.
IEEE offers a wide range of learning and career enhancement opportunities within the engineering sciences, research, and other technology areas. The goal of these programs is to ensure the growth of skill and knowledge among professionals and to foster individual commitment to continuing education among IEEE members, the engineering and scientific community, and the general public.
IEEE and SMPTE® Partner to Bring Leading Content in Motion Imaging to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library
Groundbreaking Standards and Peer-Reviewed Articles in Motion-Imaging Technology Coming Soon to Leading Online Engineering and Technology Library From IEEE
17 March 2015 - The IEEE, the world's largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, announced today a partnership with the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers® (SMPTE), the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, entertainment, and technology industries. With this partnership, IEEE will host the SMPTE Digital Library within the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
The SMPTE Digital Library includes the peer-reviewed SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal, proceedings from SMPTE conferences, and more than 800 standards documents including recommended practices and engineering guidelines dating back to 1916—over 20,000 documents in all.
SMPTE standards, articles, and papers will complement over 3 million articles from some of the world’s most highly cited technical publications currently found in IEEE Xplore. Additionally, through this agreement, SMPTE content will reach a wider audience of more than 3 million technical professionals who visit IEEE Xplore each month.
“This partnership with SMPTE aligns with the ongoing IEEE goal to enrich our library with even more high-quality, leading-edge content to empower engineers to advance technology for the benefit of humanity,” said Sheila Hemami, vice president, IEEE Publication Services and Products.
“SMPTE is pleased to bring our existing community of members and subscribers a greatly enhanced experience within the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, providing a robust, user-friendly platform with powerful search tools and convenient access options to help users discover the information they need when they need it,” said Barbara Lange, executive director of SMPTE.
Beginning in March, SMPTE will transition responsibility of institutional subscriptions to IEEE, while SMPTE continues to support all SMPTE memberships and individual member subscriptions directly. The IEEE Xplore Digital Library will host the entire SMPTE Digital Library starting in the fourth quarter of 2015. More updates are coming soon from SMPTE.org and IEEE.org.
