Harvard Referencing

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

It is School policy that students should use the Harvard Method of Bibliographic referencing and in particular the version specified by the American Psychological Association (APA). The sixth edition of the Publication Manual of APA has recently been published.

All the School Handbooks (UG, MSc and MBA) have an appendix giving details of how to use APA and these have been updated for the sixth edition. Second and Third year students should check their handbooks (via Mole) for updates

There is also an online guide to APA 6 for students which is available on the Library web pages. It can be found at

As APA6 is the standard for students in the School I suggest that it is not helpful to ask students to use a different variation of the Harvard method.

All new students receive a copy of the Handbook. Handbooks are also placed on the MOLE level websites for UG students and continuing students will be sent an e-mail advising them of the updating of the UG Handbook.
