The Journal of Instruction-Level Parallelism

How to reference papers in JILP

Because JILP papers are published on a rolling timetable, and because they are web-first, there are some slight differences when citing JILP papers in a bibliography/reference-cited section of a paper.

As an example, here is a JILP reference "[1]" in IEEE Transactions bibliography format (which is also the standard format for JILP):

[1] T. Conte and M. Farrens, "How to reference papers in JILP," The Journal of Instruction-Level Parallelism, vol. 1, March 1999 (

As with other journals, JILP volumes are based on the year of publication.   For JILP, volume 1 is 1999 and volumes are numbered sequentially by year.  There are no issue numbers.

We will keep the URL for volume number N as in perpetuity
