OES Electronic Newsletter Volume 6, Number 17

October 2009 IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering Available Online

Dear OES Members,

The October 2009 issue of the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering is available online through the Journal's webpage on IEEE Xplore.

This issue contains Part II of a Special Issue on Sediment Acoustic Processes. Part I was published in the October 2008 issue, and we plan to publish Part III in the July 2010 issue of the Journal.

Xplore is most expedient for some members outside the USA who will not receive their printed issue for months (because of ultra slow postal mail from the US to Canada, delivery by drifting buoys to Europe, etc.).


As a benefit of membership in the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) you have electronic access, via IEEE Xplore, to all the proceedings of OES-sponsored conferences (e.g. OCEANS Conferences) and all issues of the IEEE JOURNAL OF OCEANIC ENGINEERING, including preprints available online before they appear in the printed issues.

Use your IEEE Web account to access these publications.

To set up your IEEE Web account, please proceed as follows:

1) Verify that your browser is set to accept "cookies."

2) Point your browser to http://www.ieee.org

3) Click on "Set up an IEEEWeb account" (third button down in right-hand column "what do you want to do?"). This takes you to a page where you can create a new account or update an existing one.

4) Point your browser to http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/ and login with your IEEE Web account username and password.

To access material owned by other IEEE societies, you have to be a member of those societies, or subscribe to a "member digital library" that allows you a predetermined number of downloads per month, or subscribe to a more comprehensive package, for example, the IEEE Electronic Library (IEL) at $125k/year.
