# How to cite the web page address as the reference?

I would like to cite a web page in the IEEE style. But I am not sure how to edit the bib code in the JabRef.

• Please giv an example: which web page do you want to cite? How should the citation look in the document? BTW: Welcome to TeX.SX! Sep 17 '13 at 13:49

I have at least six IEEE styles by default , but in any case you can use the type of reference @electronic or may be @misc. Probably you have in your disk the file IEEEexample.bib with several entries like this:

@electronic{IEEEexample:IEEEwebsite,
title         = "The {IEEE} Website",
url           = "http://www.ieee.org/",
year          = "2008",
key           = "IEEE"
}


If this file exist, you can compile a file like the below MWE to test how these entries are formatted in LaTeX:

\documentclass[english]{article}
\begin{document}
\cite{IEEEexample:electronhowinfo,
IEEEexample:electronhowinfo2,
IEEEexample:electronorgadd,
IEEEexample:hyperrefsty
}
\bibliographystyle{IEEEtran}
\bibliography{IEEEexample}
\end{document}


Of course, you must change IEEEtran with the exact IEEE style that you are using.
