Layout and Punctuation
As can be seen in the examples above, the Harvard system always
requires you to cite the author's name and the date of publication.
These can be worked into your text in two different ways. Note the
punctuation in each case as it is important to
show your reader exactly which piece of information the citation
1. Both the name and date can be written in brackets following
the quote, paraphrase or summary:
- This concept has been explored in detail (Argyle, 2006).
2. The name can be incorporated into your own sentence and only
the date included in brackets:
- Argyle (2006) has explored this concept in detail.
