IEE/IET launches new letters journal --Micro & Nano Letters

Micro & Nano Letters has published its first issue, June 2006. The journal is currently available online through the IET Digital Library on the Scitation platform , although it has yet to appear in the IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) of IEEE Xplore. Print issues are reported to be forthcoming although the description online only references the online ISSN 1750-0443. I couldn't find an entry in Ulrich's by title or ISSN.

IEE and IEE Merge to Form IET - The Institution of Engineering and Technology

.: On 31 March 2006, the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) and the Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE) merged to form a new professional institution for all European engineers, known as IET, the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Information from the press release:

Europe’s largest professional society for engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology has been launched today in London.

The new Institution has been formed by the Institution of Electrical Engineers and the Institution of Incorporated Engineers and will have more than 150,000 members worldwide.

On the IET website, the IEEE/IEE Electronic Library has been changed to the IEEE/IET Digital Library. According to John Platt of IEEE, in an posting on PAMNET-L:
No changes to access through IEEE Xplore are expected. A few IEE journals or conferences will likely change their names following the merger, but that should be it.

IEE Computing and Control Engineering - Problem in IEEE Xplore With Latest Issue

.: Dana Roth sent along information about a problem with the latest issue of the IEE title, Computing and Control Engineering, as indexed in IEEE Xplore. The latest issue is v16 n6, December 2005, and is available on the IEE Digital Library. However, on IEEE Xplore, v.15(6),2004-5 is the first listed issue and v.16(6),2005-6 is not posted, although it is on the IEE website. All previous v15 2005 issues are available on IEEE Xplore.

Dana received the folllowing message from IEEE: "We just received the files for the new issue of IEE Computing and Control Engineering from IEE. It generally take about 30 days from the time we receive the files until the issue is posted in Xplore, so it will appear some time in early April."

IEE Adding Two More Proceedings Titles

.: IEE has slated the introduction of two new journals to its IEE Proceedings .... series. Although the announcement indicates that both will appear in 2006, website activity and the ad inside the back cover of the latest IEE Proceedings ... issues indicate that one title will debut shortly. No entry page is available yet for either title in IEE Digital Library, IEEE Xplore, or AIP Scitation. - George Porter

IEE Journals Backfile: Announcement and Request for Help

The IEE is digitizing its journal backfile from 1872, in order to make all of its old journals easily accessible. While we have access to most volumes of these journals, we are unable to locate any copies of the following at present:

  • Electronic Systems News (6 vols.), vols. 1-6 (1975-1980).
  • Journal of the Institution of Electronic and Radio Engineers (1 vol.), vol.55 (1985). [Later merged with the IEE]
  • Journal of the Institution of Production Engineers (31 vols.), vols. 1-31 (1922-1952). [Later merged with the IEE]
If you are a Librarian, please could you check your stocks in order to ascertain whether you have any copies of the above volumes which you could either lend to us or supply to us. Although we can scan and return borrowed copies, we would prefer to be able to de-spine volumes so that they can be scanned more easily. So, if you have any spare copies of the above journals which you could provide, we would be most grateful.

A full list of the volumes and issues of which we would like to obtain spare copies can be found at

IEE Launches the IEE Digital Library

:: As announced in an e-mail on various discussion groups today. I did a quick comparison with IEEE's IEL, and all the content in the IEE Digital Library is also available on IEL.:

The IEE is pleased to announce the launch of the new IEE Digital Library. The IEE Digital Library is hosted on the Scitation platform from the American Institute of Physics (AIP) and replaces the IOJ (IEE Online Journals) platform.

The IEE Digital Library provides access to more than 50,000 technical papers from IEE journals, magazines and conference publications dating back to 1994, covering a wide range of information in electrical and electronic engineering, telecommunications, computing, power, control, radar, circuits, materials, bioengineering, IT, and more.

In addition to having all IEE publication tables of contents and abstracts freely available, users will enjoy many features of the Scitation platform, including sophisticated browsing and searching, pay-per-view articles for non-subscribers, a complete suite of personalization tools, and extensive citation links to publishers and databases.
