Harvard Referencing: About This Guide

We welcome your feedback. Please email t.downey@unsw.edu.au

Please Note: this guide provides a modified version of the author-date system presented in:

Style manual for authors, editors and printers 2002, 6th edn, rev. Snooks & Co., AGPS, Canberra.

Methods for citing electronic sources are changing rapidly and do not always keep pace with the development of new technologies. As the Style manual offers only a few examples, The Learning Centre has adapted and modified the existing information. Where no Harvard style options were available, citations are based on APA style.

Always check with your lecturer or tutor about their preferred referencing method. Many UNSW faculties and schools have style guides and The Learning Centre strongly suggests you check with them about which methods to use.
