The IEEE Mathematics Guide (PDF, 707 KB) illustrates how mathematical equations should be rendered in a technical article.

The IEEE Reference Guide (PDF, 684 KB) outlines how to cite a variety of references in IEEE style. To cite specific IEEE periodicals, check Journal Titles and Abbreviations (PDF, 634 KB) or Magazine Titles and Abbreviations (PDF, 510 KB) as appropriate.
