If you’re wondering what happened to the March issue of The Institute, which traditionally has been bundled and mailed with IEEE’s flagship magazine, just open your print issue of IEEE Spectrum and turn to page 56. The next section is your member publication. Each of The Institute’s quarterly issues—which are published in March, June, September, and December—will now be found inside the pages of Spectrum.
Why the change? For the past few years, I’ve been trying out different methods to raise the visibility of The Institute’s award-winning content. What better way to do that than by joining forces with IEEE’s most popular member benefit? And, of course, there are cost savings and environmental benefits that come from combining the distribution of the two publications.
There also are changes being made to The Institute’s website to give those articles more prominence. They are migrating to Spectrum’s website. You can now find The Institute at https://spectrum.ieee.org/the-institute/
