IEEE Research Papers

Table with electronics on it

IEEE stands for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

This is an organization known for developing standards for the computer and electronics industry.

It unites engineers, scientists and students dealing with electrical, electronics and related problems.

If you are about to start writing your IEEE research paper you should better start with a thorough study of the official papers on IEEE style: Information for Authors : IEEE Transactions, Journals and Letters(2003), the Reference Guide: IEEE Style(1998) and Numeric Referencing(2004). They propose basic rules of writing research papers in IEEE style.

For you not to spend too much time wandering through the Internet resources we provide you with some IEEE research papers tips:

  • what distinguishes IEEE research papers is a special way of citing materials: each item should go with a number enclosed by square brackets
  • the number coincides with the one given in the reference list
  • if the source is cited more than once the same number is given to it
  • place the reference number on the same line as the text goes
  • don’t use any punctuation, just make a space before the bracket
  • name your reference list as References, it should be left justified
  • the numbers of items should also be left justified
  • make two spaces to the right of the closing bracket
  • in case more than one work appears in the same citation use multiple references separated by commas
  • it is allowed that in your IEEE research paper you may substitute reference numbers for the name of the author if it is appropriate
  • in your IEEE research paper you should prove any idea or finding of yours with some concrete information, otherwise they won’t have any professional value
  • it is preferable that you apply to some official resources or published materials
  • if you cite some “non-recoverable” information, there’s no need in the citation number, identify the author within the text.

We hope you’ll find these hints useful for your IEEE research paper writing!
