IEEEtran.bst is the official BibTeX style for authors of the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Transactions journals and

It also may have applications for other academic work such as theses and
technical reports. The alphanumeric and natbib variants extend the
applicability of the IEEEtran bibstyle family to the natural sciences
and beyond.

The IEEEtran bibstyle is a very comprehensive BibTeX style which provides
many features beyond the standard BibTeX styles, including full support
for references of online documents, patents, periodicals and standards.
See the provided user manual for detailed usage information.

The latest version of the IEEEtran BibTeX style can be found at CTAN:


as well as within IEEE's site:


Note that the packages at IEEE's site do not contain the natbib and
alphanumeric variants (e.g., IEEEtranN.bst, etc.) as these are not used
for IEEE related work. These files can be obtained on CTAN.

README                 - This file.

IEEEtran_bst_HOWTO.pdf - The user manual.

IEEEtran.bst           - The standard IEEEtran BibTeX style file. For use
                         with IEEE work.

IEEEtranS.bst          - A version of IEEEtran.bst that sorts the entries.
                         Some IEEE conferences/publications may use/allow
                         sorted bibliographies.

IEEEtranSA.bst         - Like IEEEtranS.bst, but with alphanumeric citation
                         tags like alpha.bst. Not for normal IEEE use.

IEEEtranN.bst          - Like IEEEtran.bst, but based on plainnat.bst and
                         is compatible with Patrick W. Daly's natbib
                         package. Not for normal IEEE use.

IEEEtranSN.bst         - Sorting version of IEEEtranN.bst. Not for normal
                         IEEE use

IEEEexample.bib        - An example BibTeX database that contains the
                         references shown in the user manual.

IEEEabrv.bib           - String definitions for the abbreviated names of
                         IEEE journals. (For use with IEEE work.)
IEEEfull.bib           - String definitions for the full names of IEEE
                         journals. (Do not use for IEEE work.)
