    This web site is doing what you want to do and they have referenced the book at the end of the article.

    Using the reference from the website posted above, this is how we were taught to reference using the Harvard System:

    Roper, N; Logan, W; Tierney, A (2002) The Elements of Nursing [4th edition], Edinburgh, Churchill Livingstone.

    Although I thought RLT's Activities of Daily Living were older than that. :confused:


    [edit] Doh! 4th edition. Nevermind....

    yup, thats how you'd reference in the reference list. In the main text body you only list the authors names and then the year

    e.g. Roper, Logan and Tierney (2002).....

    Or you can just use Roper et al. (2002), et al. standing for 'and others' I believe. Useful when many people have collaborated on the same text - you can use it if there are three or more authors, but not if there are only two or one. Just don't forget to put the date on each reference within your essay - at my previous uni they were always complaining people hadn't referenced properly and were losing marks because of it.

    See you.

    but check with your uni.

    At herts we used the Harvard Referencing and when you mentioned the reference for the first time you had to write all the authors in full and could then put et al for any other times you mentioned them after that.

    But at Geroge's we also use Harvard but have to put et al from the beginning and never have to list them all on the first reference

    although its the same system there are a few discrepancies between uni's so best to check your uni's style manual or something to be sure
