The Harvard Style, an author date style, is one of the most popular styles for business and management research in the UK. Unfortunately, there are many variations for the Harvard style and there is no definitive guide to the Harvard style so different books and guides adopt minor variations. It is important to be consistent and use the same formatting conventions throughout your document.

See: Harvard Business School Citation Guide
Citation conventions for HBS students to use when writing research papers.

Other author date styles include:

APA (very similar to Harvard)
Chicago
MLA
