# Do not generate IEEE references

I'm trying to generate IEEE type references. Could you please advice me why I don't see references in my PDF file.

\documentclass{IEEEtran}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{filecontents*}{testing.bib}
@article{doran2014detection,
title="{Detection, Classification, and Workload Analysis of Web Robots}",
author="Doran, Derek",
year="2014"
}
\end{filecontents*}

\title{IEEE article}
\author{Nilani A}

\begin{document}\maketitle
\bibliographystyle{ieeetran}
\bibliography{testing}
\end{document}


Following is my PDF File

• you not have bibliography in your document example. without it you will not have references. – Zarko Jan 25 '18 at 6:27
• You should do: pdflatex+bibtex+pdflatex+pdflatex. First pdflatex writes references in aux file. bibtex processes them. second pdflatex inserts bibliography in your document and fourth solves ?. – Ignasi Jan 25 '18 at 8:36
• @Ignasi - The OP's issue was a lack of proper capitalization of the argument of \bibliographystyle. – Mico Feb 8 '18 at 22:31

The instruction

\bibliographystyle{ieeetran}


is faulty. It should be

\bibliographystyle{IEEEtran}


Here's an MWE (mininum working example):

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{testing.bib}
@misc{doran2014detection,
title  = "Detection, Classification, and Workload
Analysis of Web Robots",
author = "Doran, Derek",
year   = "2014",
}
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{IEEEtran}
\bibliographystyle{IEEEtran} % <-- not "ieeetran"

\title{IEEE article}
\author{Nilani A}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
