We suggest that you use the Harvard method for this purpose. The following is a brief explanation of the method: 3.1 Source reference – Harvard method NB: the year of publication and page number(s) must always be cited. A work written by one author is referred to as follows: “De Wet (1995:105) endorses the point of view that the purchasing function is important . ...” or “the purchasing function appears to have a big financial impact (De Wet 1995:105)” Note that the author’s initials and title are omitted. It is incorrect to write “P.E. de Wet” or “Prof de Wet”. A work written by two authors is referred to as follows: “Nel and le Roux (1995:105) are of the opinion that the purchasing function makes an important contribution. ...” or “The purchasing function makes an important contribution (Nel & le Roux 1995:200).” If there are more than two authors , the reference is as follows: “.... De Wet et al (1995:105) are of the opinion that the purchasing function is important.” A reference to more than one work takes the following form: “...De Wet (1005:105), le Roux (1995:200) and van der Merwe (2006:20) endorse this point of view” or “. ... other authors (de Wet, 1995:105; le Roux, 1995:200; & van der Merwe, 2006:20) also endorse this point of view. If the author is unknown , the abridged title is referred to as follows: “...the importance of the purchasing function is described in Introduction to business economics (1995:106). ..” The title may be underlined or italicised but not both. Note: Direct quotations (where one quotes verbatim from a work) must be placed in quotation marks: “Business Economics can be regarded as a science (de Wet 1995: 100).” 3.2 Source list – Harvard method At the end of the assignment you must provide a complete bibliography (source list, reference list) of the works you have consulted for the assignment. These are arranged alphabetically according to the authors’ names. If the author is unknown, the title is used to determine the position of the work in the bibliography. The following information should be included in bibliographic entries: The author’s surname and initials, followed by a full stop Year of publication, followed by a full stop The title of the work, underlined ( or in italics), followed by a full stop The edition, followed by a full stop Place of publication, followed by a colon The name of the publisher followed by a full stop The following are examples of bibliographic entries: One author De Wet, P.D. 1995. Introduction to business economics . Pretoria: Van Schaik. Two authors De Wet, P.D. & le Roux, A. 1996. Introduction to business economics . Pretoria. Van Schaik. Author unknown
