The Footnote or Harvard reference methods – some guidelines
The footnote reference method Footnote references should be placed at the bottom of each page. Footnotes should be numbered sequentially throughout the article and starting with 1. Archival sources/published works/authors referred to in the text should be cited in full in the first footnote of each new reference. Thereafter, it can be reduced to a shorter footnote reference. Do not refer to the exact same source and page numbers in footnotes that follow each other.
A source from conference proceedings First reference to the source: D Dollar, “Asian century or multi–polar century?” (Paper, Global Development Network Annual Conference, Beijing, January 2007), p. 7.
