Actually, searching for "Reduction of inter-block artifact in DWT" should produce IEEE articles, most probably from the Transactions on Image Processing journal or Transactions on Signal Processing.
And indeed they do. My technical searches always include at the very top the most relevant academic papers from scholar.google.com
Blocking-artifact reduction in block-coded images using wavelet-based subband decomposition
H Choi, T Kim - Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, , 2000 - ieeexplore.ieee.org
Inter-frame wavelet transform coder for color video compression
S Zafar, YQ Zhang - US Patent 5,495,292, 1996 - Google Patents
Embedded image coding using zerotrees of wavelet coefficients
JM Shapiro - Signal Processing, IEEE Transactions on, 1993 - ieeexplore.ieee.org
Blocking artifact detection and reduction in compressed data
GA Triantafyllidis, D Tzovaras - Circuits and Systems for , 2002 - ieeexplore.ieee.org
Perhaps the solution is for you to make a Google Scholar profile and you will get those as well?
