New Content and Services Now Available from IEEE Xplore

June 24th, 2009 by Robert Heyer-Gray

With the latest release of IEEE Xplore (v.2.7), IEEE announced a partnership with two of the leading physics organizations, the American Institute of Physics (AIP) and the AVS. Five of their journals have been incorporated into IEEE Xplore. The five journals are:

* Applied Physics Letters (AIP)
* Journal of Applied Physics (AIP)
* Review of Scientific Instruments (AIP)
* JVST A: Vacuum, Surfaces and Films (AVS)
* JVST B: Microelectronics and Nanometer Structures (AVS)

From within IEEE Xplore, it is not clear that UC Davis has online access to these titles…which we do. When selecting the pdf from any of these titles, be sure to use the UC-eLinks option null to retrieve the full-text.

IEEE Xplore Mobile (Beta)

IEEE Xplore Mobile (Beta) allows users to quickly access IEEE Xplore digital library articles from any web-enabled phone by simply visiting on your phone’s browser. Using this service will allow you to:

* Search IEEE Xplore on the go
* Retrieve the top 10 search results for your query along with full article abstracts
* E-mail the individual results to yourself or your users
