Harvard Referencing
In text Citation

Using Harvard referencing you must cite works or ideas you have used in your essay at the point where you use them.
                                                                                                 Citing ideas:
When citing ideas you must give the name of the author and the publication date of the work, only use page
numbers if appropriate.

which students can focus on their work (Garrett, 2011)
OR

which students can focus on their work .

                                                                              Citing quotations:
When citing quotations give the authors name, the date of publication, and the page number of the quote, in
that order. Remember: cite the date of publication from the copy of the text you have, not the date it was
first published. You shouldn’t be citing (Shakespeare, 1604, p.3) unless you’ve read the original folio!

OR
Shakespeare continues to raise questions about Hamlet’s religion in his soliloquy with the
declaration ‘Or that the Everlasting had not fixed, His cannon ‘gainst self –slaughter.’(2007, p.

If you use a quote found in another work you must cite it as (Author A, 2000 cited in Author B, 2004).

DO NOT FORGET TO USE QUOTATION MARKS!
Citing Articles and Chapter works:
When citing articles or chapters from collected works cite the author of the chapter/article in the text and
give the full citation including the work in which it was found in the bibliography.
Citing Websites:
Websites can be cited in the text just like books – cite the author or institution if not author is listed, and the
date published (usually found at the bottom of the page).
