The Harvard referencing style used at TAFE SA uses in-text and end-text citations formatted in a very specific order and style.
Here you can see an example of an essay that has been written using Harvard referencing:
Harvard in-text citations
- The in-text citation generally gives only the author/s surname/s or family name/s and the year of publication.
- If your sentence referred to a quote or specific piece of information that was obtained from a particular page within your source, you would also include page numbering within the in-text citation.
- The in-text citation must be placed within the sentence, or after the sentence, where you have used the information.
- The author only needs to be included if he/she has not already been stated in the sentence.
- Include the names of all authors. If there are more than three authors, you can use the abbreviation et al. - this is a latin abbreviation meaning 'and others'.
Examples of Harvard in-text citations follow, using the bibliographic data for this book:
Who: Tanya Ha
What: The Australian Green Consumer Guide: choosing products for a healthier planet, home and bank balance
Where: (publisher) University of New South Wales Press, (place) Sydney
At the beginning of a sentence. For example:
Ha (2008) states...
In the middle of the sentence. For example:
The theory of ... in Ha (2010, p. 53-54) predicts that...
At the end of the sentence. For example:
It has been said that... (Ha 2008, p. 61)
