Important: This is a guide only. To avoid losing marks confirm the referencing requirements of your school with your lecturer.
Australian Harvard is an in-text citation style. This means you insert a brief reference (‘citation’) into your writing whenever you use a source. The in-text citation is made up of the source’s author and year of publication enclosed in round brackets.
For each source identified in the text, you also need to create a matching entry in the reference list. The reference list is an alphabetical presentation of all the sources used in a piece of writing.
Each entry in the reference list should contain enough identifying detail to allow your reader to locate the source if they wished.
