Latest Release of IEEE Xplore Database Now Live


The latest release of the IEEE Xplore Digital Library went live this week, and includes several enhancements, including the following new and improved features:

Author Name Disambiguation
With this release, disambiguated author names will be added to the system to improve precision and recall of searches on IEEE. Author disambiguation establishes authority files for authors and institutions by identifying all articles written by a given author, or from a given institution, while simultaneously distinguishing between different authors having the same name.

(Please note – if you have any saved searches for authors, those searches will need to be reset.)

For more information visit the New Features and Global Search help pages.

Altmetrics Stats now included on IEEE and IET articles
This release contains the inclusion of Altmetrics data for IEEE and IET journal articles (not conference proceedings or standards). These are metrics displayed on an abstract that indicate how much attention a recently published article has received via social media sites, so that users can easily determine the most relevant articles.

For more information on this topic, visit the New Features help page.

Please contact with any questions.
