The Harvard Referencing Method

 

The Harvard method is an Author-Date method...

 

  • When you include an idea / piece of information from another author in your work, you will need to add a very brief reference (that usually includes the author's surname and year of publication) to the source of that information.

 

  • You will also need to add a complete reference to a list that is displayed at the end of your work.

 

This example illustrates the idea ..

The very brief reference that is placed in the body of your work is usually referred to as an in-text citation.  - citation simply being another word that means reference!

As you can see from the example, the in-text citation is linked to the full reference at the end of work by the Author's surname and Date of publication.
