Portico is pleased to announce the signing of an agreement with IEEE to preserve the organization’s periodicals and conference proceedings. The IEEE is the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology. The international association produces nearly one-third of the world's literature in the fields of electrical and electronics engineering and computer science, as well as develops more than 900 active industry standards. IEEE serves engineers, scientists and other professionals in 160 countries and has more than 365,000 members worldwide.
Through this agreement with Portico, IEEE has committed 137 periodicals ( journals, transactions, magazines, newsletters ) and 163 conference proceedings for long term preservation, thus ensuring its publications will be available to future generations of scholars, practitioners, researchers and students.
In addition to supplying content, IEEE has agreed to make an annual financial contribution to Portico.
