XXXXXXXXXXAdapted Harvard Referencing

Holmes has now implemented a revised Harvard approach to referencing:

1. Reference sources in assignments are limited to sources which provide
full text access to the source’s content for lecturers and markers.
2. The Reference list should be located on a separate page at the end of
the essay and titled: References.
3. It should include the details of all the in-text citations, a
anged
alphabetically A-Z by author surname. In addition, it MUST include a
hyperlink to the full text of the cited reference source.
For example;
P Hawking, B McCarthy, A Stein (2004), Second Wave ERP Education,
Journal of Information Systems Education,
Fall, http:
jise.org/Volume15/n3/JISEv15n3p327.pdf
4. All assignments will require additional in-text reference details which
will consist of the surname of the autho
authors or name of the
authoring body, year of publication, page number of contents,
paragraph where the content can be found.
For example;
“The company decided to implement an enterprise wide data
warehouse business intelligence strategies (Hawking et al, 2004,
p3(4)).”
