The most complete list of member benefits can be found at www.ieee.org/myieee. The list will distinguish benefits that come with your membership at no additional cost, as well as add-on products and services. Society benefits vary..
All IEEE members can search and review the 2 million + records and abstracts, and can download articles from IEEE Spectrum and. IEEE Potentials magazines. The ability to download other articles is dependent upon your add-on services, e.g., add-on membership to IEEE’s technical societies, and/or being an add-on subscriber to the IEEE Member Digital Library.
Micro-volunteering(µVolunteering) involves a volunteer working for smaller tasks that contribute towards a larger event or project.
There are different levels of involvement, based on the role you have on the platform. Community administrators and organizational units (OUs) champions require the highest level (and time) of commitment. This is estimated at roughly 4 hours per week. Additionally time may be required in the first week, where you help the IEEE Young Professionals Executive Committee set up and personalize your community. Throughout your role as either a Community administrator or OU champion, we will provide support and training, through regular communication.
As a platform user, your level of commitment and engagement is up to you. However, keep in mind that the more engaged users are, the more successful the pilot will be, in terms of identifying what works, what doesn’t, and what improvements can be made.
IEEE Access is a multidisciplinary, open access (OA), applications-oriented, all-electronic archival journal that continuously presents the results of original research or development across all of IEEE’s fields of interest.
IEEE Access will publish articles that are of high interest to readers, original, technically correct, and clearly presented. Supported by author publication fees (APC), its hallmarks are a rapid peer review and publication process with open access to all readers. Unlike IEEE’s traditional journals, reviews are “binary”, in that reviewers will either Accept or Reject an article in the form it is submitted in order to achieve rapid turnaround.
