IEEE Style: Book Chapters

A guide to IEEE referencing style for Murdoch University students and staff


•  These examples are for chapters or parts of edited works in which the chapters or parts have an individual title and author/s, but are included in collections or textbooks edited by others.

•  If the editors of a work are also the authors of all of the included chapters, then it should be cited as a whole book using the examples given for Books.

  Only the first letter of the first word of the title of the chapter or part is capitalised.

  Enclose the title of the chapter or part in quotation marks and italicise the title of the whole work. Punctuation goes inside the quotation marks.
