January 2005 – A major upgrade to the IEEE Xplore online delivery platform offers researchers a more functional design, enhanced searching and usability, and an automated welcome page that recognizes users' subscriptions and access rights.
IEEE Xplore 2.0 provides subscribers with full-text searching of all content – currently more than 1.1 million documents – and enables free, basic searches for all visiting researchers. Another new search option enables subscribers to focus their search on only the latest content.
"The new features of IEEE Xplore are a direct result of the feedback we have received from our subscribers," said Barbara Lange, IEEE Director of Publications Business Development.
IEEE Xplore 2.0 also includes new, functional "homepages" for all IEEE periodicals. Each homepage provides a review of the publication's aim and scope, along with links to all past and present issues. Author manuscript submission information is also available through the homepages.
In addition, conference proceedings are grouped together to show title history, instead of displaying multiple times in title listings.
IEEE Xplore 2.0 was released in late March of 2005. Additional information will be available on this site soon.
