Harvard Referencing - the guide to citation and referencing

This guide is based on Pears, R. and Shields, G. (2013) Cite them right: the
essential referencing guide. 9th edn. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan (Palgrave Study Skills).
(Quick Guide) for online book

Cite them right is now the standard Harvard referencing style at UEL for all Schools apart from the School of Psychology which uses the APA system. This book will teach you all you need to know about Harvard referencing, plagiarism and collusion.

Library and Learning Services have just invested in a new online version of Cite Them Right. This is available on- and off-campus (you will need to log in with your Athens username and password to access the resource away from UEL).
