Harvard Referencing Guide: Corporate body (including Government) publications

Publications from a corporate body (e.g. Government publications)

NAME OF ISSUING BODY (Year) Title. Place of publication: Publisher, Report no. (where relevant).

Note: Where the author is a government body, the country becomes the author. If an official report has individual authors these should not be used: instead use the name of the official body. 

e.g. GREAT BRITAIN. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL SECURITY (1988) Report of the enquiry into child abuse in Cleveland. London: HMSO, Cm413.

 

For reports known by their title rather than their author/s, include a see reference in your reference list, in addition to the main entry.

e.g. The Cleveland Enquiry - see GREAT BRITAIN. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL SECURITY (1988).

 

For reports known by the name of the chairman or person responsible for the inquiry, include a see reference in your reference list, in addition to the main entry.

e.g. Cadbury report - see COMMITTEE ON THE FINANCIAL ASPECTS OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE (1992).
COMMITTEE ON THE FINANCIAL ASPECTS OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE (1992) Report of the committee on the financial aspects of corporate governance (Cadbury Report). London: Gee.
