Write and Cite: The QMU Guide to the Harvard Systems of Referencing

The Harvard system of referencing is a method for citing references in your assignments and giving the sources of those references.

The Queen Margaret University guide to the Harvard system has been developed to provide staff and students with a common referencing style to work with at QMU.

Please note: Consult your student handbook, or your lecturer, to check which system for citing references your subject area uses.

Get to grips with the QMU style of referencing:

  • Guides can be purchased from the LRC Service Desk for £2.00.

  • Alternatively access, or download, a PDF copy of the guide:
