# [texhax] justfy the reference in IEEE template

Fri Jul 23 11:48:49 CEST 2004

Hi Jing,

I took a quick look at the IEEEtran.cls.  I think you can cheat the system by making the following change in the bibliography section.  If anyone else has a better fix, please let us know.

Jim

\def\thebibliography#1{\section*{References}%
% V1.6 add some rubber space here and provide a command trigger
\footnotesize \vskip 0.3\baselineskip plus 0.1\baselineskip minus 0.1\baselineskip%
\list{\@biblabel{\@arabic\c at enumiv}}%
{\settowidth\labelwidth{\@biblabel{#1}}%
\leftmargin\labelwidth
\itemsep 0pt plus .5pt\relax%
\usecounter{enumiv}%
\let\p at enumiv\@empty
\renewcommand\theenumiv{\@arabic\c at enumiv}}%
\let\@IEEElatexbibitem\bibitem%
\def\bibitem{\@IEEEbibitemprefix\@IEEElatexbibitem}%
\def\newblock{\hskip .11em plus .33em minus .07em}%

Change the {\settowidth... line to this:

{\settowidth\labelwidth{\@biblabel{#10}}%

Subject: [texhax] justfy the reference in IEEE template

Hi,

Does anybody know how to justify the reference items in IEEE template?

I am writing a paper using IEEE template. When the reference number from one digit (e.g. 1, 2, ..., 9) to two digits (e.g. 10, 12, etc.), the blank space between the number and the first letter of the authors moves one space right. I need to adjust it to make it evenly.

Thanks.

Jing
