In addition to the numerous educational and networking opportunities included in your IEEE society membership, did you know that your membership also comes with a free individual subscription to IEEE DataPort? Just login to IEEE DataPort using your society member credentials to activate your free individual subscription, $480 per year value.

IEEE DataPort is IEEE’s sustainable data solution that thousands of scientists, researchers, and authors use to access, store, and manage research data. As a society member, you can search and download any of the 4,000+ datasets on IEEE DataPort to advance your own research more rapidly. In addition, you can upload your own datasets up to 2 TB to receive citations, obtain a DOI, and gain global exposure for your valuable research.

Exploring the Benefits Offered by the IEEE DataPort Data Platform

Figure 1. Key benefits offered to IEEE DataPort individual subscribers.

All datasets added to IEEE DataPort are stored on Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), a widely used AWS storage service that offers industry-leading scalability, data availability, security, and performance. Every IEEE DataPort member is given an AWS access key to upload datasets to or download datasets directly from AWS. In addition, since IEEE DataPort uses the AWS platform, individuals can use their other AWS computing resource subscriptions such as Amazon Athena, AWS data pipeline, or AWS Glue to perform more advanced analysis.

With IEEE DataPort, it is easy for users to find what they are looking for as all datasets can be searched by topic, author, keyword, or dataset type as shown in Figure 2.

With your free individual subscription, you can access any dataset in the Cloud or by direct download. Datasets with a CC BY license can be copied, analyzed, or used for any other purpose with proper attribution. Since IEEE DataPort is integrated with 170 IEEE journals, you can easily upload your dataset and link it to your manuscript to strengthen your submission and support research reproducibility.

Another benefit of your free IEEE DataPort subscription is the ability to host Data Competitions. The Data Competition module allows users to host time-limited data challenges in which a dataset and DataPort Competition instructions are uploaded by the competition initiator. Members of the global technical community, or a specific set of participants, can then join the Data Competition and provide their specific analyses or make predictions based on the dataset.
