Due the abuse by Tel-Aviv University user/s IEEE has suspended the access to IEEE E-journals.

We will identify the abuser and take action against him/her.

Below you will find IEEE letter:

Dear Customer:

We have recently become aware through our host server, that 178 concurrent sessions have been opened simultaneously and attempted to access IEEE Xplore. This type of activity indicates a robot or intelligent agent is being used to systematically search and download the contents of the IEL database.

Downloading the database or any portion of a publication's issue or volume in a systematic fashion is strictly prohibited. The use of robots or intelligent agents on site is a violation of your subscription license agreement.

Therefore, we have suspended access to your institution until we can resolve this matter.

We ask that you do the following:

Work with us to identify the abuser(s). Locate and remove all downloaded data from all storage devices and provide us with a letter stating you have done so. Inform all potential users of the use restrictions in Section 4 of your license agreement.
