IEEE Referencing Style

The IEEE style is a numeric style, where in text citations are numbered in order of appearance and that number is enclosed in square brackets, i.e. [1]. The number given to an in text citation is also given to the complete reference in the list of references at the end of your work. When a source has been cited once, the same number is re-used for all subsequent citations for the same source.

IEEE Style Guide

Guidance about how to use the IEEE style is available from the pdf of the IEEE Editorial Style Manual 2017.  

Chapter V of the manual provides extensive guidance about referencing but you may find other sections useful as well.
