IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) citation style is commonly used in technical fields specifically in the electronic, electrical and computing science. IEEE style is made up of three parts and they are as follow:
This guide provides a brief introduction to the IEEE style of referencing and citing. For detailed information on IEEE style, please refer to IEEE Reference Guide.
Here are some referencing examples:
|Material type||Format||Reference list|
[#] A.A. Author, Title of the published book. xth ed., Place of Publication City: Publisher, Year.
