Duke Bags Honor as IEEE’s 1 millionth Online Technology Document

January 1, 2004

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) released its 1 millionth online technical document to researchers in January. There are now more than 1,000,200 full-text technology papers, articles and standards in IEEE Xplore, the delivery system for IEEE online publications.

The milestone document, "Novel Frame Buffer Pixel Circuits for Liquid-Crystal-on-Silicon Microdisplays," was published in the January issue of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits. The paper was written by IEEE Members Sangrok Lee and James C. Morizio and IEEE Fellow Kristina M. Johnson. The authors are with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke's Pratt School of Engineering.

"This milestone illustrates IEEE's importance as the primary source for current technical literature." said IEEE publications director Anthony Durniak. "The publications of IEEE's many societies and councils cover the breadth of today's technology. With IEEE Xplore, we provide high-tech researchers, scientists, engineers and other users with a single, convenient source for access to the papers and technology standards they need to develop tomorrow's technical innovations. The value of IEEE-published information is demonstrated in the four million downloads requested by users each month."

The IEEE online collection of technology articles and papers has grown by more than 25 percent over the last 18 months. This includes more than 80,000 archival backfile documents from 1950-1987 added last year.
