Hey there,

I'm doing an essay and I have to cite in the Harvard (or APA) format. Now, I have a problem with a particular citation. Basically, there is a large paragraph where I have used the same source several times.

So, it looks quite messy and long. However, is there a way where after citing the source once for example (e-lover, 200922), I can cite the same again and again without having to type (e-lover, 200922)??!

Thanks!

hmm yeah I heard of that, ibid and op.cit. But isn't that for MLA or Cambridge? I may leave it. It looks rather messy lol.

I thought it would look like this:

Blah blah blah (e-lover 2006: 22). I hate Spurs (ibid.).

No need for the comma after e-lover or the p.

"ibid" is the official one to use, but it's fallen out of use these days.

If you reference it multiple times, it'll increase your word count :ninja:

Not at my university it isn't because you take 'ownership' of citations, footnotes and appendices. Just not the bibliography.
