how to harvard reference in text
The author-date style requires that the surname of the author and the year of the publication be inserted in the text at the appropriate point.
If the authors’ names form part of your sentence you do not need to include them in the parentheses. Otherwise, place both the name and the year, without punctuation, in parentheses.

Unlike many referencing styles, there is no source document for a Harvard Guide. This guide is based on Commonwealth of Australia 2002, Style Manual for authors, editors and printers , 6th edn , rev. by Snooks & Co, John Wiley & Sons, Australia, Milton; and a wide range of online Harvard Guides were also consulted.
