How do I do it?
The Harvard System requires two elements: in-text citations throughout your assignment and a list of references at the end.
1. In-text citations
Include three pieces of information about a source within the text of your work:
- the name of the author or authors
- the year of publication
- the page number (when the information/idea can be located on a particular page or when directly quoted).
At the end of your text, you must include a list of references, that is, a list of all the sources of information you have used to research your assignment.
- Each list item requires specific information. See Citing different sources with Harvard Referencing and How to cite references with Harvard Referencing.
- List each item in alphabetical order, by author surname.
- Titles should be in italics.
- Each item should have a hanging indent.
