Standards for Source Referencing

Full bibliographic references should be provided and consistent format of presentation should be followed.

The Harvard bibliographic system should be used preferred. In the main text, the reference or quotation is annotated in parentheses with the surname of the author, the date of publication of the work and the page number from which the quotation was taken. The full bibliographic details are then provided in a list of the references at the end of the work.
