About Harvard Style


Harvard style is an author-date referencing system that includes two elements:

  • in-text citations in the body of your paper
  • reference list at the end of your paper


Do You Know That...

A reference list or end-text citations are the full list of sources you have referred to or cited in the body of your work.

A bibliography is the full list of works which you have used in the preparation of your written work.

A citation or in-text citation is the reference you make to a specific author's work when presenting a specific argument in your own work.
