Harvard UTS Referencing Guide

The Harvard (UTS) Referencing Style is based on the Australian Government's Style Guide for Authors, Editors and Publishers (6th edition, 2002). It is used in all of the Faculties except Law.

Always bear in mind that the point of referencing is:

  • To avoid allegations of plagiarism by acknowledging and giving credit to the works of others that you have used (via in text citations). UTS:HELPS has resources for avoiding Plagiarism.
  • To clearly and simply enable another person (or perhaps even yourself) to find the information or item referred to (via the reference list).
