THE HARVARD REFERENCING SYSTEM
The primary reason for correct referencing is to demonstrate what is your own work and what is work produced by other writers. Failure to quote your sources could lead to accusations of PLAGIARISM!! Plagiarism is intellectual theft as you are claiming work is your own when, in fact, that work belongs to someone else.
The order for a Harvard reference is:-
• Author name [upper case]
• Year of publication
• Title of book [italics, first word upper case, the remainder lower case] • Edition [if not 1st]
• Place of publication
