How to reference books in Harvard style (7:20)
hi everyone and welcome to this short video let's talk about how to write a reference for books using the new harvard referencing style which will come into effect at southern cross university on November the 1st 2022 so here are the elements that you'll need to reference a book correctly you can usually find this information on the front or back cover or somewhere on the first couple of pages of the book or in the library catalogue ebooks and online books have a slightly different way of being referenced and this will be covered later in the video so here's an example of a library catalogue let's see where the referencing information is usually found you'll need the author name or names the year of publication the title of the book any edition number the publishing company and lastly the place of publication the place of publication is the location or city of the publisher if more than one place is listed just use the first one or the one that's highlighted in bold type if there is one if no city is listed you can just use the state so here is the basic format for referencing a book in harvard style this is how to arrange the referencing information that is drawn from our catalogue first there are the authors keeping the author's names in the same order as they appear in the book start with the author's last name followed by their initial there is a comma to separate the first two authors but we place an and before the last author's name not an ampersand notice that in harvard style we do not use full stops to punctuate the author's initials after the last author's initial we have a space before the year of publication which is in brackets this is followed by the title of the book which is in italics and sentence case sentence case just means capitalizing the first word of the title and any proper nouns next we have the publisher name followed by a comma and the place of publication followed by a full stop so let's have a look at how our book fits with this format first we have the author's last names and their initials our book has only two authors so we simply use an and before the last author's name not a comma see that after the last author's initial we have a space before the year of publication then after the year of publication we have the title of the book which is in italics and sentence case notice how this title has two parts after a colon or dash the next word is in lower case then comes the publisher name a comma and the place of publication which is usually the city and a full stop now what if our book was an edited book or a book in another edition again we can find all the information on the first few pages of the book itself or in the library catalogue so let's have a look at this example for the information we need the editor's name the year of publication the title of the book the edition number and this book appears to be in its first edition the publishing company and the place of publication here's an example of the format we use for referencing an edited book notice that the elements follow the same pattern as our previous example but instead of the author names there are the names of the editors for the in-text citation the abbreviation at al is used for three or more editors only the first editor's surname is cited in the reference list again there is a comma separating the first two editors and an and separating the last two editors then after the last initial comes the abbreviation for the word editors which you can see is eds all in lower case and this information is contained within round brackets then comes the year of publication note that there is no comma between the editor information and the year of publication there is only a space before the book title publisher and place a publication so let's have a look at how our book fits with this format first comes the editor's last names and their initials as our book has three editors we have used commas to separate the first two editors and an and before the last editor's name after the last editor's initial is the editor information contained in round brackets and then a space before the year of publication next comes the title of the book which is in italics and sentence case notice that in sentence case we use capitals for the first word of the title as well as for names or proper nouns so we have capitalized the name wiley blackwell as well the title is followed by a comma and then we have the publisher name a comma and the place of publication now let's take a look at how to reference a book in an edition other than the first edition here is the basic format for referencing a book in another edition note that all the elements follow the same pattern as our earlier examples only in this example you can see the edition information is placed after the title of the book notice that this information is in abbreviated form the letters e d n stand for the word edition the edition information is followed by a comma before the publisher of the book so let's look at an example again our reference starts with the author's names followed by a space and then their initials the two authors are separated by an and after the last author's initials we have a space before the date 2020 in round brackets next comes the title in italics and sentence case now this book is in its fifth edition and this information is after the title in abbreviated form then after the addition information a comma is included followed by the publication name and location and finally a full stop now sometimes a book has been revised since its earlier published version but it's not a new edition this can happen when the author has made minor updates to the content or has corrected it in some way but these changes aren't substantial enough to warrant it being an entirely new edition if this is the case include the abbreviation for revised edition denoted here by the letters edn space rev followed by the comma if you are using a book with a doi you don't need to put in the place of publication if you use an ebook from the library you can reference it just like a print book however some open access ebooks will not have a place of publication now you can see all the books discussed in this video have been included in this example references list the reference list should always begin on a new page at the end of your document with the heading references in bold and centered at the top of the page you can see that the references have been arranged in alphabetical order based on the first author's surnamesnov remember to include all the works you cited in your assignment in your reference list at the end of your paper so now you know how to reference books and ebooks in the harvard style we hope this has been helpful there is more information too so don't forget you can access scu's online reference guides through a link on the library homepage to explore further and happy referencing we'll see you next time
How to edit a chapter in an edited book in Harvard style (4:41)
Hi everyone and welcome to this short video today. You will learn how to write a reference for a chapter in an edited book using the Harvard referencing style. An edited book usually comprises of a number of chapters that are each written by a different author. When you use information from a chapter in an edited or collected work the author or authors of the chapter must be credited, so let's take a look at how to do this. To reference a chapter in an edited book you'll need the chapter author's name or name, the year of publication, the title of the chapter, the name or names of, the editors, the title of the whole book, the publisher's name and the publisher's location. All of the information needed is on the first few pages of the book itself or in the library catalogue, so here is an example of an online library catalogue. Let's look at where the referencing information might be found now. It is difficult to fit the whole catalogue entry on this screen, so you may need to scroll down to find some of the necessary elements for example; the first element needed is the chapter author names so scroll down to the chapter information to find this information. So, here we have the chapter information and we're looking at chapter three. The first thing needed is the chapter author names which as you can see are Wendy D Manning and Susan I Brown. We also have the title of the chapter; American Families Demographic Trends and Social Class. More information can be found on the copyright page of both books and ebooks, for example, here we have the year of publication 2014, and the names of the editors Jay J I Scott and M Richards. The title of the whole book is The Wily Blackwell Companion to the Sociology of Families, the publisher's name is John Wiley and Sons and the publisher's location is Chichester. Here is an example of the basic format for referencing an edited book first the chapter author names notice that all the names are reversed so that the last name or surname comes first followed by a space and then the initial or initials for each chapter author. Note that there is an and separating the second last chapter author and the last author there is no ampersand or comma, then there is a space after the last author's initial before the year of publication, which is in brackets. The title of the chapter comes next which is in single quotation marks and in sentence case. This is followed by a comma then the word in lowercase followed by the editor's name. Notice that these names are also inverted so that their last name comes first before their first name initial and there is no punctuation between the initials and the last name then there is an abbreviated form of the word editors, which is donated by eds and placed within round brackets, then comes the title of the whole book which is in italics and sentence case. This is followed by a comma before we have the publisher's name a comma and the publisher's location. So let's see how our book fits with this format and here it is again, the same general pattern as our previous example applies first. We have the chapter author names, which are arranged with the last name first, followed by a space and then the initials in this case there are only two authors which are separated by an and then after a space comes the year of publication followed by a space. Next, we have the title of the chapter in single quotes followed by a comma, then the word in and the editor names, which follow the same format as the author's name that is their last name followed by a space and the first name initial. The editor's name is followed by the abbreviated word for editors which is contained in round brackets and then a space before the title of the whole book notice that in this title the name Wiley Blackwell is capitalised. Next comes the name of the publisher and then the location of the publisher, so we've reached the end of the video. Remember to include all of the citations you've used in the text of your assignment in your reference list at the end of your document, this should also be on a new page with the heading references in bold and centred the reference entries should be ordered alphabetically based on the first author's name we hope this short video has been helpful. You can find more information about referencing through a link on the library's homepage or you can contact your librarian or one of the Learning Experience Team members who would be happy to help you.
