Citation and Reference Management


"Harvard style" refers to the author-date system of citation, which originated at Harvard University. There are now several variations that refer to themselves as Harvard style; there is no official manual (for more details, see Lund University's Harvard guide). Ask your course instructor if they have a preference for a particular version. If not, choose one version and be consistent. Two examples of Harvard style guides are given below.
