    I'm having some trouble with the finer points of Harvard referencing.

    • When you put the year of publication next to the author name of the chapter for an edited book, do you put the year of publication of the edited book or of the material that has been reprinted for this chapter?
    • Similarly, if I have found a pdf file filled with uploaded photos of a printed book that I want to cite, do I use the date that the pdf was created as publication date or do I use the date the book was printed? It's not an ebook. Do I just put it in my bibliography as a printed book? Or do I treat it as a pdf?

    The date of publication is normally the first date the material was published (if someone quoted a book author in a second book you'd use the date of the original book not the date it was republished).

    Are you at university? If so your library should be able to help with any referencing problems you have (and might have software available to help). If not then tools like http://www.citethisforme.com/help or endnote and similar would be worth looking into - they'll make your life a lot easier.

    Type in neils toolbox on Google and it will do it for you, just give the relevant information (it will tell you what to put)
