Harvard Referencing

Guide to the style of Harvard referencing required by Doncaster College.


Example of citation within the text - Paraphrasing

The West End is full of musicals that are essentially just strings of hits loosely connected by unconvincing scripts (Mamma Mia, 2004, Viva Forever, 2013).

The Shakespearean stage has not seen such a raucous adaptation since the Sixteenth Century (Twelfth Night, 2013).

Example of how the reference for this source should appear:

Viva Forever  (2013) by Jennifer Saunders. Directed by Paul Garrington [Picadilly Theatre, London. 3 Februrary].

Twelfth Night  (2013) by Filter.  Directed by Sean Holmes. [Cast Theatre, Doncaster. 18 October].
