Harvard Referencing

There are two parts to Harvard referencing:

  1. In-text citation
    Your in-text citation should go after a quotation, paraphrase or summary and should include the author's surname, the year of publication and a page number (if applicable). If you use the author's name in the sentence you do not need to repeat it in the in-text citation.
  2. Reference list
    Your reference list gives the full publication details of the information source (books, journal articles and websites) that you have cited in your text.

For more information about adding in-text citations and creating your reference list, click on the options below.
