Harvard Reference Generator
This free online Harvard Reference Generator will assist you when referencing your coursework. Referencing an article correctly when using other authors work is essential. This reference generator creates the correct layout order for you to copy and paste into your reference list.

Whichever system chosen, it is important that you are consistent throughout your article. Any research taken from any source must be referenced whether directly quoted or paraphrased. To link the information you use in your text to its source, put the author’s name and the year of publication at the appropriate point in your text.
