Referencing for students: VU Harvard style

Using Harvard

Introduction to Harvard

Important: this is a guide only. To avoid losing marks:

Harvard is an author-date referencing style.

Harvard style requires in-text references and the reference list.

In-text references appear within the body of the document. They include the author(s) family name and the year of publication, with extra details if required, such as page numbers.

A reference list provides full details of all in-text references at the end of the document.

General rules for in-text references

Direct quote

A direct quote is when you are using the exact words of the author(s).

Do not overuse direct quotes.

Put direct quotes between single inverted commas (quotation marks), and add a page number.

If no page number is available, include the location of the quote using a paragraph number or section heading. The word paragraph can be abbreviated to para.

If you omit words from a direct quote, you will need to add a space followed by three ellipsis dots (...) and another space. For example: Gray (2018, p. 188) suggests that the 'most interesting ... finding is the significant difference in whether SNS interaction is seen in the same way as face-to-face interaction'.

An in-text reference can be inserted at the beginning, middle or end of a sentence.

Beginning of a sentence

Gray (2018, p. 175) observes that 'much of the discourse surrounding young people's social media use focuses on negative effects, such as depression, social isolation and cyberbullying'.

Middle of a sentence

In their discussion of the practical benefits of creativity in enhacing resilience, Puccio, Cabra and Schwagler (2018, p. 75) note that 'creative thinking is about seeing, and generating, many possibilities' which can help people to better see their way through challenging situations.

End of a sentence

'Look at what you have and simply use it for the purpose that you bought it' (Brown n.d., para. 8).

Block quotations

Quotes of more than 25 words in length are known as block quotations.

Block quotes need to start on a new line and be indented from the text margin without single inverted commas (quotation marks).

At the end of the quote, include the reference details such as author name, year and page number(s) in parentheses.

The Australian cultural renaissance of the post-war era is well documented but it is debatable whether the concept of an Australian fashion identity has permeated beyond our shores:

The idea of "fashion" as being a characteristic of Australian culture is frequently regarded as a non sequitur. Fashion is seen as belonging to far-flung cosmopolitan sites elsewhere while Australia is a far-flung site cut off from the trappings of civilization. Equally, Australia has long been regarded as being cut off from the "finer things" of civility, fashion,and good taste. At best, an Australian sense of style is regarded as anything that is practical, informal, and casual — T-shirts, practical footwear, moleskin trousers, and wide-brim hats; as an outfit thrown together without much thought (Craik 2010, p. 158).

Paraphrasing

Paraphrasing is when you are expressing the ideas of the author(s) in your own words.

An in-text reference can be inserted at the beginning, middle or end of a sentence.

Beginning of a sentence

Smee (2018) highlights the importance of environmental remediation of farm gullies to prevent soil run-off and improve the health of the reef.

Middle of a sentence

Exploring the tragic death of the celebrated artist, Loving Vincent (2017) is the first fully painted feature film.

End of a sentence

A major factor influencing the way feedback is given to students appears to be discipline area norms (Winstone & Boud 2017).

Using Harvard

Multiple works by the same author(s) in the same year

Identify works by the same author(s) in the same year by adding letters a, b, c, and so forth, to the year in both the in-text reference and the reference list entry.

Paraphrasing

Paraphrasing is expressing the ideas of the author(s) in your own words.

The illustrations in Branford & Coutts books for children (2015a, 2015b) highlight how line drawings add to the textual message.

Reference list entry

In the reference list, identify works by the same author(s) in the same year by adding letters a, b, c, and so forth to the year (for example: 2015a).

Try to identify the sequence in which the works were published. If the sequence cannot be determined, put the references in alphabetical order by title.

Branford, A & Coutts, L 2015a, The precious ring, Walker Books Australia, Newtown, NSW.

Branford, A & Coutts, L 2015b, The wishing seed, Walker Books Australia, Newtown, NSW.

Using Harvard

Referencing Works by different first authors with the same family name

In a single document, to identify works by different first authors with the same family name insert the initials of the first author’s given name(s).

It is argued that ... (Johnston, A 2016) but E.L. Johnston (2018) claims that ... .

Reference list entry

In the reference list, order works by different first authors with the same family name alphabetically by the first initial.

Johnston, A 2016, 'Motivation and the academic - where the drivers sit', Journal of Management Development, vol. 35, no. 6, pp. 765-777.

Johnston, EL 2018, 'Why are scientists so quiet?: cultural and philosophical constraints on the public voice of the scientist', Journal and Proceedings of the Royal Society of New South Wales, vol. 151, no. 467/468, p. 50.

Using Harvard

Multiple references in the same parentheses

When including two or more references in the same parentheses in a sentence, list all references alphabetically, separated by a semi-colon (;).

It has been claimed that… (Crauder et al. 2018; Sprague 2018; Sweeney 2018; Wilmott, Fraser & Lammes 2018).

Using Harvard

Personal communication

Include personal communication, such as face-to-face interviews, conversations, telephone calls, letters or emails, in an in-text reference.

Information about personal communication must be included in the in-text reference. Include the type of personal communication (for example: personal conversation, email, interview, telephone conversation), year and the exact date in a day-month format.

However, personal communication references do not need to be included in the reference list.

An email (JW Ayers 2018, personal communication, 2 February) confirming that results are accurate ...

During an interview conducted on 6 June 2018, Prof Helena Moore stated that …

Using Harvard

Secondary citation

Use a secondary citation to acknowledge the work of an author(s) that has been directly quoted or paraphrased in another author's work.

In the in-text reference, include the original source of information and the source you have used. For example, if a book by Hurlbut cites Stark, refer to both Stark and Hurlbut.

'…new forms of oversight and ethical review were integrated into growing bureaucracies of big bioscience’ (Stark, cited in Hurlbut 2018, p.3).

Stark (cited in Hurlbut 2018) claims that...

In the reference list, include only the source you have used. In this example, you would only need to include the Hurlbut reference.

Hurlbut, JB 2017, Experiments in democracy: human embryo research and the politics of bioethics, Columbia University Press, New York.

Using Harvard

General rules for the reference list

Place of publication

If the place of publication is not commonly known (for example: Harlow) or the place of publication could be located in two or more countries, additional information is required.

For Australia and the United States, add the abbreviated name of the State.

Fitzroy, VIC or Delmar, NY

For the United Kingdom, add the abbreviation UK.

Harlow, UK

For other countries, add the name of the country.

    Referencing for students: APA style

    Using APA 6th ed.

    Introduction to the APA 6th ed. referencing style

    Important: This is a guide only. To avoid losing marks:

    APA is an author-date referencing style. You need to follow this style when acknowledging your information sources.

    APA style requires that all references in a document are to be cited in-text, and that all in-text references are compiled in a reference list at the end of the document. In-text citations appear within the body of the document and include details such as author(s) family name, year of publication, and page number(s) (if applicable). The reference list must provide full details of all in-text references, and be arranged alphabetically by surname of author(s).

    General rules for in-text citations

    Paraphrasing

    Paraphrasing is when you are summarising the words or expressing the ideas of the author(s) in your own words. When paraphrasing you must acknowledge the original source in the text of your writing. Include the author’s surname and year of publication in round brackets or if including the author(s) name anywhere in the sentence, place the year of publication in round brackets next to the author’s name.

    Note: When paraphrasing there is more than one way to place the citation within your text.

    Citation at the beginning

    Leskowitz (2017) describes the transcendent states that athletes experience...

    Citation in the middle

    . . . sport viewed as a spiritual path (Leskowitz, 2017), and one that is frequently followed in the west.

    Citation at the end

    . . . athletes using techniques adapted from holistic and complementary medicine (Leskowitz, 2017).

    Note: Different referencing methods may highlight the importance of the author, or give more weighting to the information.

    Author-prominent citations

    In his research, Leskowitz (2017) explores mindfulness, biofeedback....

    Information-prominent citations

    . . . applying up-to-the-minute advances in holistic and complementary medicine (Leskowitz, 2017).

    Including page numbers in a paraphrase citation

    Although APA does not require page numbers when paraphrasing another’s work, you may choose to include page numbers particularly when dealing with a lengthy or complex document.

    A number of holistic practices and dispositions can be applied when training or coaching athletes to increase the likelihood of athletes getting into ‘the Zone’ (Leskowitz, 2017, p. 324).

    Direct quotes

    Direct quotes are used when you are using the exact words of the author(s). Put direct quotes between double quotation marks, and add a page number. Do NOT overuse direct quotes.

    Webber (2018, p. 82) concludes that “addressing the issue of school dropout not only affects the education system, but may also serve as a prevention effort for the welfare, mental health, and corrections systems”.

    If the work you are referencing does NOT contain page numbers, then use chapter numbers, section headings and paragraph numbers as part of the in-text reference.

    "As the national peak body for early childhood, ECA is a regular, and trusted, contributor to the public policy debate on all matters affecting young children (birth to eight years) and their families" (Early Childhood Australia, 2016, Advocacy section, para. 1).

    If you omit words from a direct quote, you will need to add a space followed by three ellipsis dots ( . . . ) and another space.

    Cannon (2012) argues that "changes in corporate approaches to such sensitive areas . . . will require coherent change strategies" (p. 165).

    Note: Quotes more than 40 words in length need to be in block form – without using quotation marks, begin the quote on a new, indented line, and double-space the entire quote. At the end of the quote, include citation details such as author(s), year and page number(s) in brackets.

    These overload issues can reach across the lifespan and affect individuals in many ways. As related issues continue to emerge, counselors will need to be aware of potential mental health problems stemming from technology overload and continue to research and develop the skills needed for effective interventions. In the digital age, these capabilities will be crucial in helping clients regain and maintain a healthy balance of life, work, and technology. (Scott, Valley, & Simecka, 2017, p. 605)

    Multiple works by same author in same year

    When an author has published more than one cited work in the same year, distinguish each work by using a lower case letter after the year within the brackets (this is also written in the reference list).

    Using APA 6th ed.

    Secondary citation

    APA discourages the use of secondary sources unless the original work is unavailable. If you read an article or book which references some information that you also want to reference and you have been unable to locate the original source, cite the source you have read in the reference list; in text, acknowledge the original source and provide a citation for the source where you found the information. For example:

    Sue reads an article by Chris Brown in the Journal of Library Administration in which he cites or refers to statements made by Ulrich Boser in his book Learn Better. Sue wants to refer to Boser’s statement in her assignment.

    Sue would acknowledge Boser in her text but her reference is to the source where she saw the information. Sue might write as her in-text reference:

    ... (Boser as cited in Brown, 2018) OR

    Boser (as cited in Brown, 2018) states ...

    In her reference list Sue would write a reference for Brown's article because that's where she sourced the information. The entry in her reference list would be:

    Brown, C. (2018). Creating better learners through learning science: A sample of methods. Journal of Library Administration, 58(4), 375-381. doi:10.1080/01930826.2018.1448652

    Using APA 6th ed.

    Personal communication

    Information obtained from personal communication does NOT need to be included in the reference list, and should only be referenced in-text.

    Examples of personal communication include:

    When citing in-text, include the author's first name initial(s) followed by their surname, and a precise date of when the communication took place.

    The Vice Chancellor's statement was confirmed during a phone interview (S. Richards, personal communication, August 14, 2018).

    Ben Cork expressed sincere regret in his letter (personal communication, April 1, 2018) ...

    Using APA 6th ed.

    General rules for the reference list

    Digital object identifier (DOI)

    When citing electronic journal articles, you MUST include a digital object identifier (DOI) if stated. A DOI is a unique, permanent identification number that will take you straight to a document no matter where it is located on the Internet.

    The recommended DOI format should appear in your reference list as:

    1. https://doi.org/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    It's also acceptable to use the older DOI formats:

    2. doi:xx.xxxxxxxxx

    3. http://dx.doi.org/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    If no DOI is assigned, include the journal’s homepage URL instead.

    Note: There is no full stop after the URL or a doi, and the hyperlink is removed.

    Place of publication

    For the place of publication, add the city, and then include the state abbreviation or country name.

    Cities in the USA need to include the two-letter abbreviation for the state or province. This is also acceptable for Australian cities and towns.

    Albany, NY

    Melbourne, VIC

    For all other cities (outside the USA and Australia), spell out the city and country name in full.

    London, England

    Auckland, New Zealand

    See also the Victoria University Library Legal Research Methods guide Opens in new window

    Using AGLC3

    General principles

    The AGLC3 style consists of:

    In-text example

    Recent developments in Australian law following the decision of the High Court in IceTV Pty Ltd v Network Nine Australia Pty Ltd illustrate a fundamental shift in the approach of courts regarding the importance and form of authorship.1

    Footnote example

    1 IceTV Pty Ltd v Nine Network Australia Pty Ltd [2009] HCA 14.

    Pinpoint references

    A pinpoint reference within a footnote directs the reader to a particular place in the cited work:

    See section 3.1.4 of the AGLC3 Opens in new window for a full list of abbreviations used in pinpoint references for legislative materials.

    Repeat citations

    When a source is cited more than once in a paper the full bibliographic details should only be provided in the first instance.

    Ibid

    Use 'Ibid' in a footnote where the immediately preceding footnote refers to the same work. The exception to this rule is if a footnote lists more than one source (in this case use 'above n').

    If a footnote refers to the same work and to the same pinpoint reference, simply use 'Ibid'. The pinpoint reference does not need to be repeated in this case.

    If a footnote refers to the same work but to a different pinpoint reference, use 'Ibid' followed by the pinpoint reference.

    Above n

    Use ‘above n’ to refer to a source that has been cited in a previous footnote other than the immediately preceding one.

    However, use ‘above n’ to refer to an immediately preceding footnote, if that footnote lists more than one source.

    Using AGLC3

    General rules for the bibliography

    If a bibliography is required list all works referred to both in footnotes and in the body of your assignment, as well as all works consulted in writing your assignment.

    The bibliography is divided into sections as outlined in AGLC 1.16:

    A Articles/Books/Reports

    B Cases

    C Legislation

    D Treaties

    E Other

    Note: Organise items alphabetically under each heading.

    Note that details provided in the bibliography are almost identical to details provided in the footnotes, with the following exceptions:

    Introduction to the Vancouver referencing style

    Important: This is a guide only. To avoid losing marks:

    The Vancouver referencing style is a numbered system, predominantly used in the medical field. Authorship is acknowledged using a number to represent a reference. From the in-text reference number, the reader may consult the reference list for full publication details.

    Additional resources

    Download the RMIT Vancouver referencing guide (DOCX, 130 KB, 10 pages) Opens in new window - MS Word document for downloading or printing

    General rules for in-text citations

    The theory was first put forward in 1987. (1)

    The theory was first put forward in 1987. [1]

    The theory was first put forward in 1987.1

    Paraphrasing

    Paraphrasing is when you use someone else's ideas or research and express them in your own words. The way you cite the information depends on the emphasis you wish to apply.

    Information-prominent citations emphasise the information you have paraphrased or quoted from an author:

    . . . as evidenced from a recent Australian study. (1)

    Author-prominent citations emphasise the author. Note: When citing a reference with multiple authors, list the first author, and then abbreviate subsequent authors using et al.

    In his research, Jones (2) asserts that . . .

    Morton et al. (2) suggest that the use of binomial control charts . . .

    Direct quotes

    Direct quotes are rarely used in the Vancouver style. However, if you use the exact wording of a source:

    Note: Within the parentheses, the in-text number is followed by a space, then the lower case letter 'p' with no space and the page number.

    "The increasing availability and growth rate of biomedical information, also known as ‘big data’, provides an opportunity for future personalized medicine programs that will significantly improve patient care". (1 p433)

    Quotes longer than four lines should be indented in a block, in reduced type and without quotation marks:

    With the increased need to store data and information generated by big projects, computational solutions, such as cloud-based computing, have emerged. Cloud computing is the only storage model that can provide the elastic scale needed for DNA sequencing, whose rate of technology advancement could now exceed Moore's Law. Moore's law is the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits and the speed of computers double approximately every 2 years. (1 p433)

    Using Vancouver

    Citing multiple references at the same point in-text

    When citing more than one reference at the same point in your text, give the relevant numbers, separated by commas. Include one space between the comma and the next number:

    A number of researchers (4, 5) discovered that . . .

    A number of researchers (3, 6, 10) discovered that . . .

    If the references have consecutive numbers, then use a hyphen. There should be no spaces between numbers and hyphens:

    A number of researchers (4-7) discovered that . . .

    General rules

    In the Vancouver style, the term “illustration” applies to anything that is not written. For example:

    The following are general rules for citing illustrations – whatever the type - using the Vancouver referencing style. However, the specific examples provided in this Vancouver guide are for citing images.

    Using numbers

    The Vancouver referencing style uses Arabic numerals, e.g. 1, 2, 3, etc., whenever a number is required. Do not use:

    Referencing for students: IEEE style

    Using IEEE

    Introduction to the IEEE referencing style

    Important: This is a guide only. To avoid losing marks:

    The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) citation style is a numbered style where references are numbered [1], [2], [3] in-text and so on in the order of appearance in the body of the document. A Reference List at the end of the work provides full details of all references cited in-text. The references are ordered as they appear in the in-text references (in order of citation, not in alphabetical order). You need to follow this style when acknowledging your information sources.

    Using IEEE

    General rules for in-text citations

    Paraphrasing

    Paraphrasing is when you are expressing the ideas of the author(s) in your own words. When paraphrasing, it’s acceptable to include only the citation as a number in square brackets, or as a number along with the author’s family name as part of your sentence.

    Note: When paraphrasing, the citation details can be placed at the beginning, middle or end of a sentence.

    Citation at the beginning

    Wilde et al. [1] suggest that energy storage is achieved . . .

    Citation in the middle

    This technology is based on a compressed gas hydraulic accumulator [1], and provides an almost perfect isothermal behaviour due to the low speed of the compressions/expansion process.

    Citation at the end

    . . . and determines its charge storage capacity with respect to a vacum [1].

    Note: Citations can also be structured according to whether they give prominence to the author, or to the information being conveyed.

    Author-prominent citations

    In his research on transducers, Jones [1] proposed a new approach for sensor and actuator selection.

    Information-prominent citations

    . . . and hence linked to an enormous heat exchange surface [1].

    Including page numbers in a paraphrase citation

    When paraphrasing, page numbers are not usually used as part of the citation, unless it intends to help the reader to locate the source of the information in a lengthy document.

    Note: Including page numbers when paraphrasing is optional, and is NOT a requirement of the IEEE referencing style.

    Direct quotes

    Direct quotes are used when you are using the exact words of the author(s). Put direct quotes between double quotation marks “ ” and add both the citation number followed by a comma, and the page number(s), preceded by p. or pp. Do not overuse direct quotes.

    Baez et al. have noted that "full 3D stacking can potentially offer additional advantages for memory and processor applications" [1, p. 14].

    If the work you are referencing does NOT contain page numbers, then use chapter numbers, section headings and paragraph numbers as part of the in-text reference.

    “A flywheel is a mass rotating about an axis, which can store energy mechanically in the form of kinetic energy” [1, Ch. 3, para. 1].

    If you omit words from a direct quote, you will need to add a space followed by three ellipsis dots ( . . . ) and another space.

    As seen in [5, p. 14], “the proposed circuit has improved signal attenuation ... ,and has been experiencing less performance degradation due to resistor variation”.

    Note: Quotes longer than three lines are strongly discouraged, and should be avoided.

    Using IEEE

    Citing the same source multiple times

    If citing the same reference within the body of the text, then use the same citation number throughout the text. IEEE does NOT allow for the use of terms such as “ibid.” or “op. cit.” when citing the same reference multiple times. Instead, if the same source is cited multiple times, then it is preferable to distinguish between these with reference to the appropriate section, for example:

    Using IEEE

    Single in-text citations

    Each in-text citation number should be enclosed by square brackets and appear on the text line, inside sentence punctuation, with a space before the bracket, e.g.

    Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorems are widely used for circuit analysis simplification [1].

    According to [2], there is little evidence that . . .

    In contrast to [3, p. 7], it is evident that . . .

    In [4], the resulting composite video signal was presented . . .

    As shown by Jones [5] . . .

    . . . as previously shown [6].

    The in-text citations numbers start at [1], and continue in the ascending order throughout the paper – unless you are referring to a source you have already cited in your text, in which case you can use the previously assigned number.

    There is little variation in the formatting of in-text citations whether you are citing a book, a journal article, a web page, or another source.

    At the end of the paper provide full details of all references cited in-text taking into consideration the type of source used. The reference list should be arranged in the order of in-text citations, not in an alphabetical order.

    Any edits to the in-text citation numbers may mean renumbering the reference list.

    Using IEEE

    Multiple in-text citations

    If listing multiple citations within a sentence of text, then the preferred method is to list each citation number separately, or by inserting a comma or en dash between each number.

    In [1], [3], [7] it was noted that . . .

    It is suggested by [6]–[8] that . . .

    It is also acceptable for multiple citations to be listed the following way in-text:

    Recent studies [1, 3, 7] have shown that . . .

    Specific objectives [6–8] indicate that . . .

    Using IEEE

    Secondary source citation

    A secondary citation is used when you acknowledge the work of an author that you have read about in another author’s work.

    The IEEE referencing style does NOT allow for the use of secondary citations.

    If a secondary citation has to be used, then the original source MUST be located and cited.

    If the original source cannot be located, then do NOT cite it.

    Using IEEE

    Abbreviations

    Month abbreviations

    When citing journals, patents and websites, use the following abbreviations for months:

    Jan., Feb., Mar., Apr., May, June, July, Aug., Sept., Oct., Nov., and Dec. (note that some months appear in full and DO NOT require a full stop).

    Use a forward slash for bimonthly issues e.g. Apr./May 2016 and a en dash for a quarterly issue e.g. June–Aug. 2015.

    Word abbreviations

    Standard IEEE words when used in a reference should be abbreviated. See the ‘Common Abbreviations of Words in References’ section of the IEEE Editorial Style Manual (2016) Opens in new window pp. 40–42.

    Journal title abbreviations

    If referencing any IEEE journals or magazine titles, then refer to the ‘IEEE Abbreviations for Transactions, Journals, Letters’ section of the IEEE Editorial Style Manual (2016) Opens in new window pp. 43–48.

    Conference proceeding abbreviations

    When citing conference proceedings, the common rule is to list the author(s), title, name and location (if provided) of the conference and use any standard abbreviations where necessary. For further details, refer to the ‘Published Conference Proceedings’ section of the IEEE Editorial Style Manual (2016) Opens in new window p. 36.

    Common IEEE abbreviations and acronyms

    When using common IEEE abbreviations and acronyms in-text, then refer to the ‘Some Common Acronyms and Abbreviations’ section of the IEEE Editorial Style Manual (2016) Opens in new window pp. 49–52.

    Using IEEE

    General rules for the reference list

    General rules

    Digital object identifier (DOI)

    When citing electronic sources such as e-journal articles or e-books, you MUST include a digital object identifier (DOI) if stated. A DOI is a unique identifier that is assigned to certain electronic sources, and provides a persistent link to online content.

    The DOI can be added to the reference list using the following formats:

    1. doi:xx.xxxxxxxxxxxx

    2. http://dx.doi.org/xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    3. https://doi.org/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    If no DOI is assigned, include either the journal/database homepage URL if taken from a library database, or the full URL if taken from a source on the open web.

    Note: There is no full stop after the DOI/URL, and the hyperlink is removed.

    Place of publication

    For the place of publication, add the city, and then include the state code (if applicable) and country name, followed by the publisher and year of publication.

    Cities in the USA need the state abbreviation and country.

    Boston, MA, USA: Cengage Learning, 2017.

    Cities in other countries (outside the USA) just need to include the city name and country.

    Oxford, United Kingdom: Newnes, 2012.
