IEEE is the largest publisher of electrotechnology literature in the world, and most results in our fields are extensively reported there.? After a brief overview of IEEE’s journals in computing, communications, packaging and other technical areas, the presentation will demonstrate methods for using the IEEE’s on-line database of journal and conference papers for analysis of published results that can affect and influence the direction of development activities. ? This includes how to access the 1.6 million items using XPLORE, some search and selection strategies, full-text versus abstracts searches, storing searches for re-use, and using Google Scholar and Scitopia. Specific recommendations for accessing the full papers will be made.? Both slides and actual online searches will be used to demonstrate various approaches that can be explored to find relevant papers, determine which labs/companies have teams working on specific aspects of the field, and the names of key researchers who might be contacted for assistance and information.

Accessing a portfolio of relevant citations can make a great difference in a universityĆ¢??s research project or in a companyĆ¢??s development directions. ? It can help inform decisions that must be made about allocating resources, and help reveal development directions that have already been tried, issues to be considered, experimental methods that have worked, etc.? Maintaining access to IEEE’s literature can be a key differentiating factor for your career as an engineer, developer or manager.

Both students and working engineers/managers are welcome to attend this talk, on the DeVry campus.
