Harvard Referencing Guide: Welcome

Starting in the 2020/21 academic year, DMU will use Harvard (Cite Them Right) as the university Harvard referencing style for all students

Continuing students may still use the DMU Harvard style if preferred and support is provided in this web guide. It is important that you check the preferred referencing style for your programme of study.

What's in this Guide?

Welcome to the Harvard Referencing Guide. This guide provides you with information and links to enable you to find out more about referencing in the DMU Harvard style.

This is a guide to the Harvard system but you should always check your course handbook and/or module outline for any further guidance, as your lecturers may prefer a different style of referencing. 

Use the tabs above, or the A-Z of Sources in the right-hand column,  to find out how to reference a range of different resources.
