Is it acceptable to be very specific in IEEE style citations (always providing the section or paragraph)?
On page 7 here there are examples on how one can use IEEE-style citations to refer to which part of the reference the reader should attend to.
Doing some research, I learnt that when citing a work using other styles, one may be specific about which part of the work they want to reference. Example.
Based on the two sources mentioned above, I came up with this:
Of course the details about which section or paragraph readers should look for has the benefit of making it easier to find that part of the reference.
However, I have not seen this used much.
I can tell that the document in the example above looks a little cluttered and perhaps reading would be cumbersome for people not interested in the citations.
Is it, in the end, bad practice?
