🙋♂️ Is the Harvard citation style the same as APA?
The APA style is a variant of the Harvard style. Both styles use author-date citations in brackets right after the taken information or at the end of the sentence, and full citations in the reference list. There are a few differences between APA and Harvard, you can learn more about them here.
🌸 Is the Harvard referencing style double-spaced?
Your Harvard paper should be double-spaced with smooth left margins. The Harvard Reference list is double-spaced too.
📎 Do you indent the Reference list in Harvard style?
The Reference list is alphabetized by the author's last name and is double-spaced with a hanging indent, meaning that all but the first line have an indent. The margin can vary depending on your institution, but in general is 0.5.
🔢 How do you write numbers in Harvard style?
In general, numbers below 101 should be spelled out. The same goes for large round numbers like "one thousand" or "twenty thousand", although 250,000 would be too long to spell out. The same goes for very large large numbers like 4.3 billion, which should be expressed in figures. What is most important though is consistency. However you choose to express numbers, be consistent with it throughout your paper. You can read more about this here.
📙 Do you use footnotes for Harvard referencing?
The Harvard citation style uses the author-date system for in-text citations, which means the author's last name and the year of publication in round brackets are placed within the text, not in footnotes. Only use footnotes within a Harvard formatted paper for explanatory notes that would not detract from the text, if necessary.
