[Updated for 2020]

Generate accurate IEEE style citations quickly and automatically, with MyBib!

🤔 What is an IEEE Citation Generator?

An IEEE citation generator is a tool that creates citations in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) citation style. It does this automatically by taking the identifier for an article or document, such as a website URL, book ISBN, or journal article ISSN (supplied by you), and detecting the remaining details. Then it formats all the details in the correct IEEE citation style.

👩‍🎓 Who uses an IEEE Citation Generator?

The IEEE citation style was developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and is based on the Chicago citation style. It is used in the area of computer science, technology, and engineering by students of these subjects, and academics writing to be published in journals of these subjects.

🙌 Why should I use an IEEE Citation Generator?

Every academic field–not just engineering–will recommend using a tool to record references to others’ work in your writing. A citation generator like MyBib can record this data, and can also automatically create an accurate reference list from it, with the necessary in-text citations too.

⚙️ How do I use MyBib’s IEEE Citation Generator?

MyBib’s IEEE citation generator was designed to be fast and easy to use. Follow these steps:

  1. Search for the article, website, or document you want to cite using the search box at the top of the page.
  2. Look through the list of results found and choose the one that you referenced in your work.
  3. Make sure the details are all correct, and change any that aren’t. Then click Generate!

The generator will produce a formatted IEEE citation that can be copied and pasted directly into your document, or saved to MyBib as part of your overall bibliography (which can be downloaded fully later!).
