IEEE Xplore


The Non-Profit Organisation “Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)” (pronounced: ‚i triple e‘) is an internationally active learned society for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, based in the USA The organisation has given itself the mission to advance technological innovation for the benefit of Humanity.

To achieve this goal, IEEE works to connect its members globally: through conferences, publications, the development of technical standards and its activities to further career development and training. IEEE’s highest priority is to promote interest in technical careers. Supporting students at Universities and Colleges globally plays an important role in this.

As IEEE is active internationally, it can be found in almost every country worldwide and is further sub-divided into 39 Societies. Each Society has its own special topic area, publishes its own journals and organises conferences in their relevant discipline.


IEEE Xplore – the digital online library

IEEE offers with IEEE Xplore a comprehensive digital research database with scientific and technical content. The content covers primarily the core disciplines of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Electronics, as well as related areas. Most content is published by IEEE itself, with some partner content.


IEEE Xplore offers comprehensive and reviewed content.

IEEE Xplore enables the online searching and access to journal articles, conference proceedings, technical Standards or similar material. Users can take advantage of over five million full-text documents from the most cited publications in the world in the fields of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Electronics.

The research database IEEE Xplore is constantly updated, as nearly 20,000 new documents are added per month. On the database, there are already over 300 peer-reviewed journals, material from over 1,900 conferences, more than 11,000 technical standards, nearly 5,000 ebooks and over 500 online courses.


Access to IEEE Xplore

In principle IEEE Xplore is open to everyone to search, and to find bibliographic data and abstracts. However to access full-text documents, a subscription is required. Subscriptions are differentiated between a personal and an institutional subscription: on this basis students often have a full access to IEEE Explore via their university. On the other hand there are also exclusive subscriptions for IEEE members and IEEE Society members. An online purchase of individual documents is also possible, with discounted prices for IEEE members.
