The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) citation reference style is a broadly-recognised format for writing research papers in technical fields, including computer science as well as engineering.
It’s now available to select within RefWorks’ “Create Bibliography” menu, as well as in the Write-N-Cite application. The list of Lincoln-specific output styles now consists of five options:
- APA (American Psychological Association) style, used by the subject of psychology.
- Harvard (University of Lincoln) – a generic version of Harvard created by the Library which you may have to modify using the Output Style Editor to meet the preferred referencing style for your course;
- IEEE, commonly used in engineering;
- ISO 690 numeric style, which is permitted as an alternative to Harvard by some subjects;
- MLA (Modern Language Association) style, used in some humanities subjects.
