Each article must contain a bibliography (only the source of the quote) which is arranged by IEEE style.

In preparing scientific papers, several things can be done related to taking references from books, journals, or other scientific works. In taking these references there are known techniques for quoting, summarizing and paraphrasing.


Quoting is to take words directly from other sources that are used to support the compiler's argument so that it does not need to be changed from its original form. The conditions for quoting are:

  • To reproduce the text exactly as the original, every quoted text must include the source by putting it in [square brackets].
  • Use direct quotes to reinforce the constructor's ideas, not to introduce new arguments.

Sum up

Summarizing is a brief explanation of what other writers have said, using words chosen by the author himself. Provisions to summarize are:

  • Following the sequence under the original ideas;
  • Summarizing from very much source text in a simpler format.
  • Use the important and relevant things from the text.


Paraphrasing is a technique of taking words from another writer to strengthen the arguments or ideas making up scientific work. Provisions for paraphrasing are:

  • Placement of the composer's own words to show the composer's understanding of the material he is compiling.
  • The selection of parts of the original text that are relevant to the constituent arguments.
  • The use of writing style that is owned by the composer himself, as long as it does not change the original meaning.

In writing a bibliography using the IEEE style, the provisions are as follows:

  • A reference to the IEEE style uses numerical numbers placed in a square box over the reference taken and placed at the end of the sentence.
  • The numerical numbers located in the square box are made the same as the bibliography on the final page of scientific work.
  • The numbering system must be sequenced starting from [1], [2] and so on, besides that, it must also be sorted according to the references taken as references in the material of scientific work.

General information on writing a bibliography following the IEEE style is as follows:

  • The list of entries must match the same numerical order as the text
  • The first name of the author is written in the initials and the last name is written in full.
  • The first letter of the first word of an article or chapter title is written capital, while the title of the book is written capital letter at the beginning of each word.
  • Article titles or chapter titles are quoted, while book titles, journals, and websites are italicized.

The following is the writing format and example of writing a bibliography using the IEEE style: [1]
