You must include a bibliography using MyBib set to the Harvard Style.

Please seek assistance from the Learning Commons staff when preparing your bibliography.

Internet sources:

For print sources:

  • record the author, title, date of publication, place of publication and publisher

In-text citations

In-text citations refers to the acknowledgement of a source of information you have paraphrased or summarised within the body of your text or work.

A bibliography appears at the end of your work. It is called end-text.

If you have used different words or simplified the text you must acknowledge the source at the end of the paragraph.

The author's name and date of publication should be included in brackets at the end of the section. e.g. (Harris, 2015)

Quotations used in your work must also be acknowledged in-text and "quotation" marks must be used followed by a citation with the page number (Harris, 2015 p 45-46)

Definition: Paraphrase: express the meaning of something written or spoken using different words, especially to achieve greater clarity.
