I want to change my IEEE references style in Lyx, because I have all the letters somewhat capitalized:

A reference

How to change it to a normal font?

Edit (bib file snippet added):

title = {Architectural Approach to the Multisource Health Monitoring Application Design},
author = {Borodin, Alexander and Zavyalova, Yulia and Zakharov, Alexei and Yamushev, Igor},
file = {[PDF] iš fruct.org:/home/user/.mozilla/firefox/g7561egsh.default/zotero/storage/PAA3RH6M/Borodin et al. - Architectural Approach to the Multisource Health M.pdf:application/pdf}

    How are they written in the .bib file? If they're written with lowercase letters there, then the bibliography style is the likely culprit. Commented Nov 7, 2015 at 8:20

  • Well, it's obviously in lowercase, so I would guess the bibliography style is to blame.You don't say which one you use though. Have you tried any others? If this happens regardless of bibstyle then something else is up, and a complete example would be nice: take a copy of your document, and remove content as you can without removing the problem. Then add the .lyx file (it's just plain text), or at the least the exported LaTeX code to your question. Commented Nov 7, 2015 at 8:42
  • For example use apa citing: \bibliographystyle{newapa} before adding your bibliography. It comes with \usepackage{natbib} Commented Nov 7, 2015 at 10:40

Thank you for your replies, now I solved the issue. The problem was that I accidentally put my bibliography in a section and I haven't seen it until I looked in the source view:
