The Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is a publisher of many peer-reviewed journals and is also a standards organization. IEEE is a non-profit association of engineering professionals, especially in areas related to electronics, computers and communications. The company is usually referred to by its initials using the moniker "I-triple-E".


The IEEE publishes around 200 peer-reviewed technical journals and magazines, and more than 1200 annual conference proceedings.


IEEE is also a widely recognized standards development organization. The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) is an operating unit within IEEE that develops global standards in a broad range of technical areas. The Wikipedia article on the IEEE Standard Association contains a long list of the many important technical standards maintained by the IEEE


The organization traces its founding to the 1884 foundation of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and to its 1912-founded rival Institute of Radio Engineers. Both these organizations merged in 1963 to form the current organization, with headquarters in New York City. However, most of its business is done at the IEEE Operations Center[1] in Piscataway, NJ, first occupied in 1975.
