The new electronic journal will carry the same 1,400 to 1,500 articles per year as the print version but will display them through the GUIDON interface, a Windows-based graphical user interface developed by OCLC.

Through links to the IEE's INSPEC Database, subscribers to Electronics Letters Online will also have access to abstracts of references cited in the articles. The INSPEC database is the world's largest and most comprehensive source of reference literature in the fields of physics, electrical and control engineering, electronics, and computing.
