Release Notes

Implementation of two variants of the IEEE bibliography style. One variant uses the reference order for in-text citations while the other uses the alphabetical order by author for in-text citations.

  • For detailed installation instructions see here.
Q: Why do I get 'BO' between brackets instead of a number when using the IEEE - Alphabetical style*?

A: The IEEE - Alphabetical* style requires the BibWord Extender tool to function properly. This tool will decide the on the numbers to place instead of 'BO'.

Q: The number column is too small and is spread over multiple rows. Is this a bug?

A: No. BibWord lets Word select the best width for each column. And sometimes, Word's best, is just not what you want. In that case, just place your cursor on the cell border between the number and the text and drag the border to the right.

Reviews for this release

Has the creator of this style even read the IEEE requirements? Since when are references printed bold? Why are forenames not abbreviated as requested by the standard? Even the original word style does that! Please, this should be fixed. Read:

IEEE style References like [1] or [2,3,4] works awesomely!

Para arreglar un problema que hay con las comillas de los titulos simplemente es dar clic derecho en el archivo, dan editar y ahí le abre en bloc de notas , oprimen ctrr b para buscar "%Title%," y ahí cambian así "%Title%", es decir cambian de lugar las comillas y listo

Just to report, "IEEE - Reference Order" also works in Office 2013 Preview version

Does not adhere to many of the OFFICIAL IEEE specifications. Just try referencing thesis or technical report, or even all the other basic stuff like proceedings and such. IEEE says authors first name must be truncated, and it isn't. Reports and Thesis get totally messed up in the order that information shows. Maybe I just can't figure out how to do it, in that case please post a correction!

IEEE 2006 works great for me, I have one issue though: in the field of journal article title, it should be: "title of article", whatever comes next. instead there is a comma before the " symbol - like this: "title of article," whatever comes next. I have tried to look into the .xsl file to fix this, but cannot understand what's going on there.... :(

It works as I needed such tools to work for me. No issues have been found for using it in a simple report in IEEE reference model.

Note that there is an error in this stylesheet - it truncates the author list to "et al." when more than 5 authors are present. All authors should be listed unless there are more than 6. Other than that, I'm using it with the IEEE 2-column template, and it looks great.

IEEE papers are typically formatted with two columns of text per page. In Word 2007 SP2, when two-column page layout is used (Page Layout tab > Columns > Two), the formatting of the references in the 'Works Cited' section is broken. Specifically, the table column that contains the reference number/code '[n]' is too narrow, forcing the reference number/code to be split across multiple lines.

When I insert citation, it does not give the usual nos, instead it gives me a list of characters like "[ HYPERLINK "" \l "Com" 1 ]". After I insert bibliography and save my work,, str like these "HYPERLINK """ appears btn each website name and its weblink. When I save, my undo history is gone! To prevent these probs, don't use word2007 to save .doc, save in .docx format!
