The IEEE Srinivas University Student Branch arranged a Webinar on “The Benefits of IEEE-An Academic Perspective.” Dr. R Thamarai Selvi, Head, Department of Computer Applications and Associate Dean of Research, Bishop Heber College (Autonomous) Tiruchirappalli, was the resource person. In her speech, she explained the advantages of being an IEEE member. “IEEE includes highly-quoted publications. IEEE provides more than 30 % of the world’s science literature. The goal of the IEEE is to provide young researchers with learning opportunities. The publication is a vital aspect of research since it is the culmination of the individual’s research work. An IEEE member may have access to a large repository of digital knowledge to gain more information on the topic of interest. IEEE is a reliable research source. If each researcher becomes an IEEE member, with the help of several authoring tools, high-quality research papers can be written easily. Findability, credibility, and flexibility are the key features of IEEE papers. More than 11 million downloads per month are the testimony to the quality of IEEE papers. By referring the scholarly articles one can improve the knowledge and get updated” she said.
