For specific examples of formatting citations for different types of works, go to the books, articles, or websites sections of this guide.

How to Cite Secondary Sources

A secondary source is one that is discussed by the author you are reading. You do not read the original report but instead get the information second-hand from the author.  IEEE guidelines do not allow the use of secondary sources. Because you did not read the original report, you  cannot include it in your research. Contact a librarian to assist you with locating the original source.

How to Cite Personal Communications

According to IEEE guidelines, personal communications (e.g., emails, phone calls, interviews and lectures) are not typically included in the list of references. Instead, identify the author, including their title, within the text of your report

Example:

In a letter, Dr. Sarah Smith from School of Construction at SAIT, claimed that many of her students enjoyed working with the IEEE style.

 

Consult your instructor to confirm whether you are required to list interviews, emails, phone calls, and lectures as part of the References page.
