IEEE Referencing

Figure, table, equation

In-Text Citations

Cite the figure/table/equation within the brackets, after the citation number, with a comma separating them, e.g.:

[3, Fig. 4] or [10, Tab. 5] or [7, eq. 6]

Use the same citation number (e.g. Lee [3]..., ...[3, Fig. 4]) if citing from the same source.

Reference List

Format the reference according to the source type - e.g. if it is a journal article, format the reference the same as any other journal article.
