We don‟t expect you to do it all on your own! However, we do expect you to be scrupulously honest about where the ideas have come from.” Newcastle University (2013), Right-Cite (Accessed 16/10/2013) University Library

  12. 12. IEEE referencing  References are numbered in [ ] as sources are introduced in your writing.  Each time the same source is referred to, the same number will be given.  Page numbers are required with citations where material is directly quoted or you refer to a specific part of the source. For example [1, p. 3], [2, pp. 5-7], [3, para. 2.1].  A full reference list with full source details – must be in numerical order. University Library
