On 31 July 2018, IEEE Xplore upgraded to a new search engine.

This new search engine allows for a much more integrated experience and offers users:

  • The ability to include wildcards with phrased searches
  • The ability to include search operators such as AND, OR, NOT, NEAR, and ONEAR via the Basic Search
  • Search that is optimized across a variety of file types including PDF, HTML, audio, and video
  • An improved process for saved searches
  • A foundation for future platform enhancements such as semantic enrichment, smarter recommendations, and concept/entity extraction

Please note: all saved searches and search histories will carry over to the new system, however, there may be instances where the number of results returned is lower than what was returned in the former search engine. To expand the number of results returned, you can include an OR operator between multiple term searches.
