Saving searches in IEEE Xplore


Welcome to Saving Searches in IEEE Xplore.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to save searches and set search alerts in IEEE Xplore.

Once you’ve completed and refined a search, saving that search and creating email alerts are easy to do in the IEEE Xplore digital library.

In order to save a search, you will need to be signed in with your personal account under the MySettings tab.

If you do not have a personal username and password, click on the register link and follow the onscreen prompts to create your account.

Enter your personal username and password in the Sign In box.

Once you are signed in and have retrieved an accurate and targeted search result set, click on Save this Search in the action bar.

A window will pop open, with details about your search.

Let’s name our search Sensor Network + Energy Harvest.

You’ll be able to see your original search term, along with any refinements you have made.

The email address you designated in your personal account will also appear.

If you leave the Set Alert box checked, you will receive an email whenever new content relevant to your search is added to IEEE Xplore. If you do not want to receive e-mail alerts, simply uncheck this box.

Click Save to save your search.

To see your saved searches, go to the MySettings drop down menu and click on Saved Searches.

Here, you’ll see all the saved searches you’ve created.

You can also create RSS feeds for searches, edit search names, delete searches and enable or disable the email alerts on a search.

IEEE Xplore lets you create up to 15 saved searches.
