Sample text with IEEE referencing

Using IEEE

The IEEE referencing style has two main features:


  • In-text reference numbers within the text of your assignment, in square brackets. The first/earliest reference in your document is [1], the next [2], etc. These are used to acknowledge each source you use.


  • The reference list which appears at the end of your assignment and is a complete list of everything you have cited in the document.
