Ravensbourne recently launched an updated version of the Ravensbourne Harvard Referencing Guide, designed by a BA (Hons) Design and Coding student and made accessible online.
The guide provides students with all the information they need to reference source materials correctly in one place, making an invaluable resource for students completing their dissertation or thesis this academic year.
It was designed by second year BA (Hons) Design and Coding student, Michail Dzigajev, and is available to all students, adhering to a widely used form of the Harvard system of referencing.
Each possible source type is listed under a grouped section, which can be clicked to reveal the order in which to place bibliographic information, as well as showing examples of what it would look like in the body of text and in the corresponding bibliography.
There is also a page on plagiarism and copyright using UAL's guidance on these, as well as links to Moodle and Ravensbourne’s journal of research, Corrupted Files.
Commenting, Dr Sara Andersdotter, Course Director, Contextual Studies said: “The advice here covers exactly what we look for in terms of referencing at Ravensbourne, so is something of a one-stop-shop for those of you working on your dissertation or thesis. Referencing can seem a daunting process when you’re not familiar with it, especially as there are so many different systems out there. The aim of this guide is to make things as simple as possible for our students, compiling all our referencing guidelines in one place.”
