Citing Articles in Harvard: Australian Style

Instructions

Names: Author’s initials are used for their first name. If an author has more than one initial do not put any spaces between initials. Where a resource has multiple authors, all authors are listed by last name and then first initial separated by commas.

Titles: Use sentence-like capitalization; only the first word and proper nouns. Include article or chapter titles in single quotation marks. Book and journal titles are fully capitalized.

Dates: Use only the year of the publication. For viewed dates use the format date month year with no punctuation between.

Note: These are only basic examples of the Harvard Australian style. More detailed information is available through the Style Manual for authors, editors and printers (6th edition). In addition, a variety of third-party style guides and web sites can provide further assistance.

Always consult your library resources for the exact formatting and punctuation guidelines.
