Citing and Referencing

Harvard Style Citing and Referencing 

Harvard Style citations are in-text citations using the author's surname and the year the resource was published, like this: (Clifford, 2018). At the end of the work, a list of references appears in alphabetical order, so that readers can quickly look up a particular author and find the full details of their work.  

Harvard Style references can be laid out in a number of ways. Library Services recommends using the Cite Them Right standard for Harvard Style references.


Cite Them Right is also available as a printed book:
