This question already has an answer here:

I am writting a paper in IEEE format. For one sentence, i have two references and therefore i want to show them in a bracket e.g. ([1], [2]) but i am not able to get that format.

Instead of ([1], [2]) , i am getting ( [1], [2]).

So, how can i remove the extra space between "(" and first "[" as depicted in the screenshot below.

My code:




\title{Effect of the Position}
\IEEEauthorblockA{Lab, Faculty of Electrical Engineering \\
University of ABC\\
\markboth{Engineering Paper}{}






this is introduction of a paper (\cite{firstPaper}, \cite{secondPaper}).

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Please show us an MWE (minimum working example -- a LaTeX program that starts with \documentclass and ends with \end{document} -- that generates the problem behavior you're encountering. Without such information it's going to be very difficult to diagnose what's going on, let alone propose a fix. – Mico Jul 26 '14 at 20:45

    Use \usepackage[noadjust]{cite} – percusse Jul 26 '14 at 20:47
  • \usepackage[noadjust]{cite} solved the problem. Thanks – skm Jul 26 '14 at 20:58
