IEEE Announces Plans for Upcoming IEEE Xplore Release
From an e-mail received this afternoon: In the coming weeks, IEEE will release IEEE Xplore 1.7, which will feature the following enhancements for institutional subscribers and IEEE Members:
- Reference sections for IEEE Computer Society magazine and journal articles published since 1995 to the present will be incorporated into IEEE Xplore and will be accessible from Abstract Plus records.
- IEEE will also deploy the first phase of a full-text search prototype. Accessible from a special link on the IEEE Xplore Search pages, users will have the option to test the new full-text search capabilities, or continue to use the "traditional search" of abstract records. At launch, approximately ten percent of the documents in the entire IEEE Xplore database will be full-text searchable. As more full-text content is indexed, the dataset of full-text searchable content will grow considerably throughout the year.
