I am using IEEE tran journal TeX file for writing document but I am facing problem in section numbering in my document. It appears as

1, 1.1

with \documentclass[journal,compsec]{iEEEtran}. I want the numbering as

1., 1.1., 1.2., 2.

and so on.

By using \renewcommand\thesection{\arabic{section}\arabic{subsection}.} I got

1., 2., 3., 3..2, 3..4, 3..5

instead of

1., 2., 3., 3.2., 3.4., 3.5.

I want to get a full stop at the end of section and subsection numbering.

Please guide me what to do.

    Note if you are writing to a journal, DO NOT change the setup, that is not your decision – daleif Apr 5 '16 at 17:04
  • Changing \thesection to include the subsection number is truly a recipe for unexpected results! – Harald Hanche-Olsen Apr 5 '16 at 17:12

Probably you want


Note compsoc, instead of compsec that has no meaning.
