I am using both TeXworks and Texmaker to write my thesis and have to somehow do my references. Moreover everything is supposed to be written using a 'book' environment.

I have found that JabRef is used for the IEEE referencing style that I want to use but I cannot use it in a book. It is obvious that I am doing something silly because I can use it in articles.

Is there any template that could be provided?

Here is an example using IEEE bibliography style. Note that JabRef is just a GUI to maintain/add/remove adjust your bibliography entries. It doesn't have an effect on the document creation mechanism.

% === Remove this up to the marked position to use your own bib file
\usepackage{filecontents} % For a dummy bibfile creation
  author = {A. Aaaaa},
  title = {Some article},
  journal = {Journal of Dummy Article Names},
  year = {2012},
  volume = {99},
  pages = {1-5}

  author = {B. Baaaa},
  title = {Another article},
  journal = {Journal of Dummy Article Names},
  year = {2012},
  volume = {99},
  pages = {6-10}

% =========== Up to here
We cite papers \cite{authora,authorb}.
\bibliography{mybibfile} % Replace this with your original bib file
