About This Tool
If you're a student and have ever had to write Reports, Essays or Theses, you will have had to reference what you have used in your report. If you mention something that someone else has written, you need to give them credit.
The Harvard Referencing System is one of the preferred layouts for these references. It is a relatively strict way of arranging the bibliographical information.
This tool takes in the raw information - author, title, year of publication - and creates the reference in the correct form.
You can then highlight and copy this into the bibliography section of your report.
You then reference this next to the relevant section within your essay in the format (Author, Year) such as (Smith, 2005).
e.g. The arms race between Bees and Wasps has escalated in recent decades, and many now suggest a full-scale war is inevitable (Benson, 2003).
Why have a Bibliography in an Essay or Report?
A Bibliography is a list of the books (or other sources of information) that you consulted when writing an essay, report, thesis or dissertation.
When doing research, we very rarely come up with our own theories. These take time to develop, and involve putting them out for debate. By researching the theories of others, we include ideas in our works that have already gone through that academic testing.
However, you have to be aware that you are using someone else's work for your own benefit. You will get the marks, but the author of the ideas may have put in decades of research to come up with the concepts.
Therefore, you need to ensure that you reference your sources - essentially giving credit to the person whom you are citing.
