Harvard referencing is a pita lol
After you have quoted text you say the author and the year eg( Burns, 1939)

You then put the full details in a separate bibliography at the end. Tell me if you're quoting from books or journal articles and I'll give you the format for your bibliography

it's a way of referencing sources in written work, in the text you should put the date and, if it s aquote, the page number, e.g.

name argues that "referencing takes too long" (1976; 67)

or

name (1976) argued that it takes a long time to do referencing properly


then in the references section (bibliography is the section where you lis everything you looked at, even if you didn't directly reference it, very few people bother with these) you should lay it out according to the standards set etc. there are too many variations but if you gogle it there are many guides on how to do it for each scenario

Most people may not bother with a bibliography, but if you are submitting work for any type of educational assessment you will automatically lose marks for not having a complete bibliography.

i meant a bibliography as opposed to a references section

if you don't include references then they'll mark you down, but you don't need a bibliography as well do you?

Yep, definitely :)

Here is a fairly comprehensive guide to Harvard referencing http://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/harvard.htm It can be downloaded as a .pdf

The references section IS the bibliography!

no a references section is the part where you list details of all aspects you have discussed or quoted in your piece, the bibliography is similar but it includes sources you consulted but didn't end up using

as i understand it anyways...

From Wikipedia "A bibliography is a list, either indicative or comprehensive, of writings sharing a common factor: this may be a topic, a language, a period, or some other theme. One particular instance of this is the list of sources used or considered in preparing a work, sometimes called a reference list."

You don't have a separate reference list and bibliography, they are one and the same. I've written heaps of articles all of which have required the use of Harvard referencing in my education thus far (1st class Hons in Environmental Sciences, currently studying for my MSc. in Molecular Ecology)

Harvie - most universities usually have a guide on their student website/intranet which gives guidelines on referencing. Check if yours have done so. Even though they are using Harvard they might have a slight variation on how they like things and some lecturers will mark you down for referencing incorrectly.......

A reference is a usually a footnote at the bottom of the page.

A bibliography is a collection of all sources used to complete the work

A reference stops you from being liable for copyright or plagerism and shows were the info came from

Harvard ref is used in the bibliography

at my uni if you dont include a bibliography then you fail!

In text you write it as 'i am the best HUKdealer' (Redranger, 2008: page no)

Then in bib write

REDRANGER86, 2008. How i became the best(in italics), Then the place the book was published: then the publisher

If you need more help email me and i will email you a guide to referencing as it is different depending on what you're referencing for instance books journals co-edited book the internet etc

I would avoid footnotes if you dont know how to use them! footnote are good for including information relevent to the essay but not including it in the word count.

they must also be used to show were work is not your own or that is plegerism which is a fail
