Sample Reference List

The reference list at the end of your piece of work should list all the sources cited in your text.

The Harvard System requires that the list is alphabetical by authors' surname. Include all types of source, e.g. online, books, film, in one alphabetical list as shown below.

If there is an instance where the same author has published more than one item in a year use lower case letters to distinguish between them e.g. 1998a, 1998b.
