Harvard Referencing Style Guide
The purpose of this guide is to provide a brief introduction to referencing in the British Standard Harvard style used at Edge Hill University. This guide is based on the British Standard ISO 690:2010 Information and documentation and the layout of this guide has been informed by Harvard style conventions currently being followed in UK Universities.
Unless your department or tutor has advised otherwise, you should follow the advice provided in this guide.
What is referencing?
Referencing is the way that you acknowledge your use of other people’s work or ideas. Whenever you summarise, refer to, or quote from an author’s work, you must acknowledge (cite) your information source.
What is a reference?
There are two parts to a reference:
A bibliography/reference list should be presented in alphabetical order, with the author’s family name preceding the author’s initials.
Layout and formatting
Information should be taken from the cited source. You should follow the format/layout on the document or information source, this includes things like spelling and capitalisation.
Incomplete references – no author / anonymous
If you cannot identify an author, corporate author, organisation, or the item does not appear to have an author, use Anon. However, in most cases, it is important that you identify the source of any evidence you include in your work. Therefore, you may wish to consult your tutor about using references that cannot be verified.
Incomplete references – no date
If you want to cite a source of information but are unable to identify a date, you may replace the year with the letters n.d. which simply means no date.
