Harvard UTS Referencing .bst file (SDIPUTS)

Introduction

Style Dictionaries for Information Presentations in UTS (UTS Harvard Referencing Style reference and in-text citations).

This style file aims to implement the UTS Harvard Referencing Style in BibTeX

The official style guide for UTS Harvard Referencing Style is available from the UTS Library: http://www.lib.uts.edu.au/help/referencing/harvard-uts-referencing-guide

Instructions

Download

The latest version of the .bst file can be downloaded from this GitHub repo.

The .bst file should be placed in the same directory as your .tex file with the below preamble.

Using in a LaTeX document

Preamble

In the preamble of your .tex document, include the following:

\usepackage[british]{datetime2} % For urldate formatting
\usepackage{natbib}
\bibliographystyle{uts} % Import Harvard UTS style
\setcitestyle{aysep={}} % Remove comma separation between author and year for in-text citations

In-Text Citation

In-Text citations can be performed with parenthesis using '\citep{bibtexkey}' or without using '\citet{bibtexkey}'.

Referencing

In your .bib BibTeX file, all standard BiBTeX reference types should be supported -- but most effort has gone into the following reference types.

  • journal articles (with article)
  • online resources (with misc)

Below are examples of each reference type:

Journal articles

Google scholar can automatically export journal articles in BibTeX format which is very useful!

@article{dijkstra1959note,
  title={A note on two problems in connexion with graphs},
  author={Dijkstra, Edsger W},
  journal={Numerische mathematik},
  volume={1},
  number={1},
  pages={269--271},
  year={1959},
  publisher={Springer}
}

Online resources

The 'urldate' tag is used for the last viewed element of the reference.

@misc{spolsky_2005, 
  title={Set Your Priorities}, 
  url={https://www.joelonsoftware.com/2005/10/12/set-your-priorities/}, 
  urldate = {2018-08-23},
  journal={Joel on Software}, 
  author={Spolsky, Joel}, 
  year={2005}
}
