You need to cite and reference your sources in your IB assessed written work. Just to remind you about the meaning of these terms:
Don't forget, you need to cite and reference a source of information if you quote the source in your text. However, many people forget that you also need to cite and reference a source if you paraphrase the source, or just refer to a specific source of information in your writing.
Harvard is a major referencing style, often used in British and Australasian universities. It is a style, so is flexible. In fact, many universities produce their own version for their students to use. The style is based on:
a. in-text citation style - sometimes this is called the 'author-date' style, as these are the only details you put in your text (except if you include a direct quotation, in which case you need to include a page number)
b. full details of your source of information is included in a bibliography. The Harvard style gives an order for recording the elements or parts of the information required.
Further details are given in the tabs on this libguide. Harvard is an easy style to use.
