Harvard Referencing Style

The Harvard referencing style is the most commonly used amongst the different types of parenthetical referencing systems. This is also the preferred type of referencing for non-scientific subjects in most UK universities.

The Harvard referencing style uses the 'parenthetical' or 'author-date' method where the author's surname, followed by the year of publication, are indicated after the relevant text with its corresponding entries listed alphabetically in a Reference List at the end of the written work. A bibliography, also arranged alphabetically, may also be included to list other materials or sources that were consulted for the particular work, regardless of its inclusion in the essay's content.


When using Harvard style, one has to credit or acknowledge the reference used by:


  1. Citing the reference used within the text.
  2. Listing all the references cited within the text at the end of the written work.


For both in-text citation and reference list, details such as title, complete author's name, publishing company, etc. will vary according to the type of source used.
