I am a CS student, and journals I think of submitting my article to recommend to use IEEE, ACM or APA on their websites. However, I read some of their articles and in their references, the do not use these citation styles. An obvious difference is that they put the year in the end. Have a look at some examples:
Pinto, L., Gandhi, D., Han, Y., Park, Y.L., Gupta, A.: The curious robot: learning visual representations via physical interactions. In: ECCV (2016)
Tripathi, A., Klami, A., Oresic, M., and Kaski, S. Matching samples of multiple views. Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, 23(2):300-321, 2011.
Paulina Hensman and David Masko. The impact of imbalanced training data for convolutional neural networks. Degree Project in Computer Science, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, 2015.
Of course, on the articles, some parts are in italic. I am very confused about this, any suggestions?
