Q. How do we access and use IEEE Xplore?


About IEEE Xplore:

Produced by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE Xplore (or "I triple E") is the ideal database for conducting research in the fields of electronics, electrical engineering, telecommunications, wireless communications, and computer engineering. It provides access to millions of documents from IEEE transactions, journals, magazines, and conference proceedings as well as thousands of ebooks. Xplore is one of the few databases that grants access to technical standards; users may access thousands of current IEEE standards. In short, if the topic pertains to technology or engineering, IEEE Xplore is the go-to resource for your research.

Locating IEEE Xplore:

To access this database, go to the library's homepage at http://www.utdallas.edu/library, then click the green Databases tab and the letter 'I' to find the IEEE Xplore link.

Note: It is necessary to navigate through the library-provided link in order to gain full access. Do not go directly to IEEE.org


What you can do from the IEEE Xplore homepage:

1) Search in a non-specific way by selecting the Browse tab on the homepage and choose among material types, like books, conferences, journals & magazines, standards, or by topic. Courses is not part of our subscription to Xplore.

2) Conduct a targeted search for keywords, titles, authors, etc. Use Advanced Search to search for combinations of keywords, search by doi or ISBN, and more.

Here is IEEE's Help document for more specific search tips.


What can you do with your search results in Xplore?

1) Refine results by type (conferences, journals & magazines, or books) by checking the boxes at the top, or by date range, author, author affiliation, publisher, publication title, and conference location using the menu to the left.

2) Sort by relevance, recency, # times cited, or alphabetically using the "Sort By" option at the top of the results list.

3) Access full text by clicking the PDF icon below an item, or click the title to review the abstract and bibliographic details.

Note: Occasionally, a document may have a closed lock icon and full text will be unavailable. Click the green "Get It @ UTD" button to jump to another library-provided link to either access the full text or request the document through Interlibrary Loan.
