Quick Citation Resources in Computer Science

Computer sciences resources typically use IEEE citation. The IEEE website provides examples of how to cite and how to structure a paper in this style. 

IEEE follows this format (ex. Article in Online Journal):

 J. K. Author, “Name of paper,” Abbrev. Title of periodical, vol. x, no. x, pp. xxx–xxx, Abbrev. Month, year. Accessed: Month, Day, Year, doi: 10.1109.XXX.123456. [Online]. Available: site/path/file


 W. P. Risk, G. S. Kino, and H. J. Shaw, “Fiber-optic frequency shifter using a surface acoustic wave incident at an oblique angle,” Opt. Lett., vol. 11, no. 2, pp. 115–117, Feb. 1986. [Online]. Available:
