Unformatted text preview: rev. Nov. 2009 1 University of Tasmania Harvard Referencing Harvard is a commonly used method of referencing, which uses the Author-Date system. Which Harvard style? Harvard has been adapted to suit many different publication styles. The style used in this guide follows the standard prescribed by the following manual. This is the official style followed in most Australian Government publications. Snooks & Co. 2002, Style manual for authors, editors and printers , 6th edn, John Wiley & Sons, Milton, Qld. Which style does my faculty or school use? Some Schools require a different style from the one outlined here. Use the citation style required by your Faculty or School. Why reference your sources? It is important to reference the sources you use for essays and reports, so that the reader can follow your arguments and check your sources. It is essential to correctly acknowledge the author when quoting or using other peoples ideas in your work. How do I use Harvard? 1. In-text citations are made like this Paraphrasing and in-text citations Example: The point made by an analytic philosopher (O'Connor 1969, p. 32) is that values cannot be justified in this way. However Kneller (1963b, p. 102) insists that the theorist will inevitably be involved in value claims. Note: Page, chapter or section numbers may be included in the in-text citation if the cited work is long and information helps the reader locate the relevant information. When the authors name is mentioned in-text (e.g. Kneller in the example above) add year and page numbers only to the in-text reference. Entries that have the same author and year are noted by adding a, b, c etc. to the year, both in-text e.g. Kneller (1963b, p. 102) and in the Reference List (See entries in Reference List below). rev. Nov. 2009 2 Direct quotes and in-text citations Examples: Having a solid plan as part of research design is essential (Hatch 2002, p. 46). Or Hatch (2002, p. 46) believes having a solid plan as part of research design is essential. Note: Always include page numbers when citing a quotation and enclose the quote in single quotation marks. Block quotes and in-text citations Example: Inductive analysis is discussed: Inductive thinking proceeds from the specific to the general. Understandings are generated by starting with specific elements and finding connections among them. To argue inductively is to begin with particular pieces of evidence, then pull them together into a meaningful whole. Inductive data analysis is a search for patterns of meaningful data so the general statements about phenomena under investigation can be made (Hatch 2002, p. 161). Note: Place a quotation of 30 or more words in your work as a freestanding block. These quotes are usually indented e.g. 5 spaces and are in a smaller font e.g. 1 point size smaller than the surrounding text. Do not enclose the quote in quotation marks....
