Enjoy all the same great technology coverage that you expect from IEEE Spectrum—from aerospace and biomedical advances to green tech and robotics breakthroughs—now in a Chinese-language edition.

The Chinese-language edition of IEEE Spectrum offers:

  • timely delivery of the current edition of IEEE Spectrum, with no delays;
  • accurate English-to-simplified Chinese translation, meeting the highest standards;
  • additional local content written by authors in China.


This new edition of IEEE Spectrum is only available to members whose primary address is mainland China (excluding Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan).
IEEE members must voluntarily opt in to receive the Chinese-language edition of IEEE Spectrum.

Members can choose to receive the English or Chinese-language edition with no additional cost to their IEEE Membership. To receive both editions, members should not opt in for the Chinese edition in their profile but purchase it from the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (ISTIC) at the reduced rate of 50% off the cover price. To purchase, please contact:
