The Browse functions are available to all users and are located under in the navigation bar. After selecting a publication type--Books & eBooks, Conference Publications, Education & Learning, Journals & Magazines, or Standards--you can browse to a title of interest using either the By Title or By Topic option. Alternatively, you can select By Topic to display an expanded browse menu. Selecting a specific topic from that menu enables you to browse different content types for that topic.
The Search functions are also available to all users. IEEE Xplore provides two ways to search:
Global Search is included on the Home page and header of all other pages and lets you search for a single word or phrase in metadata. IEEE members and guest users may choose to search both full text and metadata by specifying this search mode in their preferences.
Advanced Search provides more controlled searching. You can restrict the search to specific publishers, topics, and publication years. You can also restrict the search to specific metadata, such as Document Title, Publication Title, or Abstract. Drop-down lists of data fields and search operators help you build the search. The default Advanced Search structures the process of creating a search query, Command Search provides a free-form box for entering the search, while Publication Quick Search focuses your search to specific publication and document information.
Author Search provides the ability to perform targeted searches for authors by entering in a specific name. You can search for authors using a combination of first name, middle name and last name (surname).
