IEEE is continually working to develop more tools, services, and publication opportunities for authors and researchers to help increase the exposure of their work. To that end, IEEE has also introduced the following open science initiatives to further support researchers and enable greater discoverability of their research.
Code Ocean is an easy-to-use web platform in which users can share and run code in the cloud. Users are able to easily upload their code and associated data to the site, where other users are able to run them and/or modify them.
Research data sharing is critical to scientific innovation and reproducible research. IEEE DataPort is an accessible online platform that enables researchers to easily share, access, and manage datasets in one trusted location. The platform accepts all types of datasets, up to 2TB, and dataset uploads are currently free of charge.
TechRxiv is a free preprint server for unpublished research in electrical engineering, computer science, and related technology. TechRxiv provides researchers across a broad range of fields the opportunity to share early results of their work ahead of formal peer review and publication. The free, publicly accessible repository aims to increase the accessibility of scientific findings, enhance collaboration among researchers, improve research, and build the future of scholarly communication. Authors can post preprint papers to TechRxiv regardless of where they eventually intend to submit and publish the paper.
