Harvard Referencing

The Harvard Referencing guide given in BISSTO has been revised and expanded to include examples of many more different sources. Some of the existing advice has been slightly amended, but does not differ significantly from the previous version. The main amendment is the removal of <> around URLs; most universities have dropped this practice. Some obsolete entries have been removed, such as Electronic Source and Sound Recording, and replaced with more specific examples reflecting the diversity of online resources and sound media. Media/format now appears consistently after the title in square brackets with no full stop. As well as examples of different sources, there is a further guidance section at the end which includes advice on common issues such as citing sources with multiple authors.

There is a short video included on the Harvard page which explains the main changes in more detail.

Thanks to everyone who suggested new media types to be included and thanks to those that have offered advice in the development of the revised guide.
