Referencing ± The Harvard System

It is important to acknowledge the source of any theoretical perspective or information used in your assignment whether you are quoting or simply describing in your own words.
o Referencing Books Bibliography:

All bibliographical references should be in alphabetical order of the (1 st) authors family name. They should take this model: Author surname, initials. (date) Title. Edition Statement. Place of Publication: Name of Publisher. e.g.
Petty, G. (2004) Teaching Today. 3 rd ed. Cheltenham: Nelson Thornes.

Hint: why not make a separate table of the books you cite most and paste into your assignments? It will save time rewriting the same references 5 or 6 times.
In text referencing:

If the author¶s name occurs naturally in the sentence when cited within the body of the essay, just put the year and page number in brackets e.g.
Petty (2004, p.336) describes learning styles as«

Otherwise put both the name and year in brackets at the end of the sentence, e.g.
A recent study describes learning styles. (Petty, 2004, p.336). o Referencing On-line and Electronic Sources In text:

When citing an on line source in text, use this model: Petty describes 3 learning styles. (on line 1) (or online 2 or 3 or 4 etc. depending on how many online references you make) Then:
Bibliography: o List your online sources in numerical order (which is how they appear in your text) o Indicate the exact URL of the web page and the date you visited it. o Do not split the URL over a line. If this is not possible, do so after a forward slash

On line ?: URL [Accessed date] for example: On line 1: http://www.geoffpetty.com/selfassess.html [Accessed 16 September 2007].
