OES Electronic Newsletter Volume 6, Number 5

April 2009 Issue of IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering available online.

The April 2009 issue of the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering is available online through the Journal's webpage on IEEE Xplore. This is most important for those of you who might not receive the print version for several months because of slow postal delivery. This page contains also a "Forthcoming" section in which you may find articles already published online that will appear in future issues of the Journal.

REMINDER: ACCESSING PAPERS ON IEEE XPLORE: 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 IEEE Web 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.
