I’m writing an essay, and have been asked to use Harvard Referencing. From what I know this type of referencing uses citations similar to (my brain, 2016).
And then contains a bibliography like:
Bibliography — or — References
My Brain (18 Dec. 2016) - “Title of article, or something” available from my skull
I've seen referencing done with [number's] instead of (author / publisher, date) in a few papers and - probably most famously - wikipedia.
Is this not classed as Harvard referencing? I find it so much neater and easier to follow, especially if I'm going to refer to multiple peices of work by the same author/publisher.
Also, I've noticed some papers placing mini bibliographies at the end of every page, containing all the references for that page.
Is this not harvard referencing?
I'd like to do this as it removes the pain of having to go all the way to the bibliography to check a citation.
