Changes to the IEEE Xplore Homepage

When you next visit the IEEE Xplore homepage it might look and feel slightly different from what you’re used to!
Whilst functionality hasn’t changed much, the ‘My Projects’ feature has been moved under ‘My Settings’ and a 'Publications Search' option has been introduced alongside the more familiar searches.

No URLs are changing so existing links and bookmarks should continue to work.

Click on the following link to visit the webpage and see the new design features which have been applied:
