IEEE Citation Style: Websites

This guide provides information on the 2014 edition of the IEEE citation style as used at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology.

Website

General Format

Reference:

[#] First Initial. Surname, "Title of webpage," Website Name, Paragraph Count, Publication Date. [Format]. Available: internet address. [Accessed: Month Day, Year].

Webpage Example

Reference:

[28] J. Geralds, "Sega ends production of dreamcast," vnunet.com, para. 2, Jan. 31, 2001. [Online]. Available: http://nl1.vnunet.com/news/1116995. [Accessed: Sept. 12, 2014].


Tips:

  • If there is no personal author, look for a corporate or organizational author.
  • If you cannot identify any author, begin the entry with the title of the work, including the appropriate capitalization and italics formatting.
  • If a publication or creation date cannot be found on a website, use "n.d." in place of the date.
  • The copyright date at the bottom of the website is often not the date of publication. If you aren't sure, use "n.d." as explained above.
  • The "Title of Webpage" is the title of the current page you are on, while the Website Name is the main URL of the website you are on.
    • For instance, the "Title of Webpage" for this page would be: "IEEE citation style: Websites", while the Websites Name would be "libguides.sait.ca". 
  • If the work, such as a website or brochure, does not have pages, a paragraph count can be used in the citation.  Page or paragraph numbers are not necessary when you are referencing a whole work.
