You may have noticed that the Cardiff Harvard style guide has been updated recently. Here’s the two main updates and changes made:
1. In the past you had the option to put a web link at the end of a journal reference. This URL format has now been replaced by a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) i.e.
Berry, D. P. and Bell, M. P. 2012. Expatriates: gender, race and class distinctions in international management. Gender, Work & Organization 19(1), pp. 10-28. doi: 10.1111/j.1468-0432.2011.00577.x
You can usually find the DOI next to the article title or on the PDF version of the article. If there is no DOI available you are advised to provide the normal journal reference without a DOI.
2. You no longer need to add [Online] to any reference type. This was usually used for webpages. A webpage would now be referenced:
Thompson, B. 2009. What role for TV in the wired world? Available at: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8115671.stm [Accessed: 10 September 2016]
Take a look at the Cardiff University Harvard Referencing guide or tutorial for further info.
