Need Social Media Content? Check Out the New Ready-to-Post Content Resource
If your IEEE section or chapter is active on social media, you're likely always looking for relevant social content to share with your audiences. Good news: help is here!
A new toolkit has been created by the Corporate Communications & Brand Marketing team to provide ready-to-post content for social media that aims to position IEEE and its thought leadership in technology.
The content covers key technology areas and include links that point back to IEEE resources, such as IEEE magazines, open access articles, videos, newsletters, blogs, IEEE Public Visibility campaigns, IEEE Transmitter, and more. Posts are available for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter social media platforms. Plus, the posts are formatted so that preview images (associated with the link) will automatically populate when you post.
This social media content resource is available for use by both staff and volunteers. To access it, simply go to the IEEE social media toolkit, “Social Media Content” and enter your IEEE credentials.
Content will be updated on a rolling basis, so check back often!

IEEE Section Gateways Debut on IEEE Collabratec
Innovation happens when we work together. We recently achieved an important milestone as an organization: Bringing together on one platform access to over 300 local IEEE Sections, personalized to each of our 400,000+ members globally.
IEEE Sections are valued and vibrant communities across the IEEE global network. Available exclusively to IEEE Members, all IEEE Sections now have a dedicated gateway on IEEE Collabratec that showcase local networks, activities, and opportunities. Linked on the Member’s profile upon log-in, gateway resources include:
• Link to the IEEE Section’s website
• New IEEE Members to the Section, as they opt into the IEEE Member Directory
• Upcoming events organized by the Section, and conferences within geographic proximity of your Section
• Listing of the IEEE Volunteer leadership who make great things happen in the Section
• Recognition of Members in the Section who have advanced in membership grade
• Recognition of Members who have received badges for their participation on Collabratec
• Collabratec communities and workspaces in which Members of the Section participate
The gateway experience is consistent for Members should they move from one Section to another -- and offers our Student Members a persistent connection with their IEEE Section during their time of study, and as they embark upon their professional careers.
The Secure Research Data Platform for all Your Data Needs
Finding a safe, secure, and central location to store, access, or share research data can prove to be a challenge for engineers and researchers. To serve these needs, IEEE has created IEEE DataPort as solution for the global technical community. Fully integrated with Amazon Web Services (AWS), this web-based data platform enables users to share and manage their datasets in one trusted location. IEEE DataPort leverages the security of AWS while offering high value with no cost at this time. Authors and data owners can upload their datasets and the platform allows authors to link their datasets to their manuscripts. IEEE DataPort also formulates dataset citations so the data owner’s work can be properly cited.
Standard datasets will always be free to upload to IEEE DataPort while Open Access datasets can currently be uploaded at no cost using the promotional code OPENACCESS1 at checkout. IEEE DataPort eliminates the tedious process of finding a hosting platform and making additional payments involved with storing your data.
Hosted datasets are accessible worldwide and give the technical community the opportunity to collaborate on a global scale. To learn more about IEEE DataPort and to upload your own dataset, visit ieee-dataport.org.
