Referencing - Harvard Solent style

In academic writing, it's essential that you cite (state) your sources of information and ideas. To ensure readers know where you found the information you must include references

You need to reference all the sources that you use in your assignments - by citing them in the main body of your assignment (an in-text reference) and compiling a full reference list at the end of your work. 

The information below relates to the Harvard Solent referencing style.  You should always check with your tutor as to which referencing style you should use in your work.
