    Hi,

    I am about to submit my dissertation. I was wondering about some of the referencing systems. I chose Oxford,but when mentioning how a team of scientist s came up with something I had to use a bit of Harvard as I mentioned the name of the person in charge followed by et al. within the text. Is this allowed or unprofessional?

    Thanks

    Your course should have a designated referencing preference. Using two different types isn't advised.
