1 Usage

{{Harvard citation | ''Last name of author(s)'' | ''Year'' | ''Location in the text'' }}

Alternative to using Location, you may also use the following parameters:

p = page pp = pages

Notes
  • The abbreviation Harv may be used.
  • The first parameter is the author's last name.
  • The second parameter is the year of publication.
  • The third parameter is the location of the cited material within the reference. This parameter is optional.
  • The parameter p is an optional page parameter (e.g., "{{ Harv | Smith | 2006 | p=25 }}" yields (Smith 2006, p. 25).
  • The parameter pp is an optional page range parameter (e.g., "{{ Harv | Smith | 2006 | pp=25-26 }}" yields (Smith 2006, pp. 25-26).
  • This template creates a hyperlink to a full reference, if Template:Book reference or Template:Journal reference are used on the same page, and these templates include the parameters Last and Year.
  • If the parameter Ref is used, it refers to a specific id tag set forth in Template:Book reference or Template:Journal reference.

If Ref=none, then no hyperlink is created.
