The Coventry University Guide to Referencing in Harvard Style

The words and ideas that you read as you prepare to write an essay or other written assignment are the intellectual property of the person/s who wrote them, and these must be referenced. Failure to do so is plagiarism, which is penalised by examiners. You must also reference all images, tables, and graphs taken from printed or internet sources.

At Coventry University, the citation format used for documenting the sources students use in academic assignments is The Coventry University Guide to Referencing in Harvard Style. This is a simple system which is used internationally by scholars and researchers. The lecturing team at the Centre for Academic Writing (CAW) have customised the various versions of this referencing style into one user-friendly guide for use by students and staff at Coventry. The guide also contains a glossary of key terms used in referencing.
