IEEE Xplore (English): Alerts

IEEE Xplore is a digital library that offers full-text access to technical literature on electrical engineering, information technology, electronics and related disciplines.


If you are registered with IEEE (see Registration tab), you can create alerts, which means you will be notified whenever new results have been added for a particular search.

How do you set up an alert?
If you have conducted a particular search for which you wish to receive alerts whenever new results come in, click on Set search alerts.

You can then give your search a name. The alert will be sent to the email address that is shown. Click Save.

If you are registered with IEEE (see Registration tab), you can opt for Content Alert via My Settings. With this function you can opt to receive an email alert whenever a new issue of a journal appears, a conference is held, new eBooks are published or there is a new version of IEEE Standards, e.g. 165-1977 – IEEE Standard Definitions of Terms for Analog Computers.


Click on the desired tab and indicate what subjects you wish receive alerts for. Select or deselect a journal or heading and click on Reset or Update.

Alerts for conferences arrive weekly and alerts for E-books monthly.

Go to My Settings and select Search Alerts. You will see your alerts listed. You can opt to change or delete them, to switch them off or to switch on RSS feeds.
You can set up a maximum of 15 search alerts.
