Harvard Referencing: Sample Reference List

Multiple works by the same author

Multiple works: same author

Arrange the references in chronological order by date of publication eg. 1996, 2006, starting with the earliest date.

Multiple works: same author, same year

Use a lower-case letter after the publication date, eg. 2017a, 2017b, to differentiate between works written in the same year by the same author, and list them alphabetically by title.

What is a Reference List

Your Reference List should be located on a separate page at the end of your assignment and titled References. It should include the full details of all your in-text references (except for personal communications and newspaper articles without authors), arranged alphabetically A-Z by author surname, see sample Reference List below. The terms ‘Bibliography’ and ‘Reference List’ are often used interchangeably, however a Reference List only includes items you have referenced in your assignment whereas, a Bibliography also includes items used to prepare your assignment. Check with your lecturer or tutor which one they require.
