Referencing your work
In this institution the Harvard method of referencing is used.
The Harvard method of referring to publications and of arranging references uses the author's name and the date of the publication. References are listed at the end of the text in alphabetical order by author's name. The general format of a journal reference is shown in the example below:
Smith, J. How to succeed! Journal of Entrepreneurs, 1(2), p. 34-56 Author’s name and initials are listed first, followed by year of publication in brackets. Then there is the title of article and the journal where article appears, which is underlined or in italics. Finally, state the volume and issue Number (in brackets) along with the pages where article can be located.
A short guide to Harvard referencing will also be available on the Sunspace site under the module assessment navigation button.
