Harvard Referencing Several Works by One Author in the Same Year

Once you have finished writing your work it can be a chore to ensure that all your referencing is done properly. Different types of source require different elements and these elements are arranged in a particular way for each type of reference. Below, I will demonstrate how to reference several works by one author that were published in the same year according to the Harvard referencing style.

To reference a single book in Harvard style, you simply state the author’s surname and the year it was published. A basic reference should look like this: (Smith, 2010). If you have already stated the author’s surname in the sentence preceding the reference, then just state the year. For example, Smith has made significant contributions to the field of nanoethics (2010).

To reference multiple works by one author that were published in a single year, simply state the author’s surname and the publication year but differentiate each work with a lower case letter directly following – with no space – the year of publication. For example, (Smith, 2010a).

If you need to reference multiple works by one author in a single citation, just separate each year of publication with a semicolon. Such a reference should look like this: (Smith, 2009; 2010a; 2010b).
