As an electronic engineer I often cite technical standards, specifications or data sheets. They come usually from a specific company or institution but do not have a specific author. I like to have them in my bibliography using all the required information like title, institution, year, version/revision/edition and type ("whitepaper", "data sheet", "standard" etc.). Unfortunately I failed to come up with a general solution for this. Often I used the
manual type but it often does not include all information.
What would be a suitable way to handle such citations? I need to use the
IEEEtran class with the
vancover (or similar) style for my current journal paper, but I also would welcome a general solution using
biblatex (which I use for my thesis).
