Template:Use Harvard Referencing
Template documentation


This template has historically been intended for placement near the top of articles that use the Harvard referencing, also known as "parenthetical referencing", citation style. Note that inline parenthetical referencing on the English popflock.com resource has been deprecated; for articles using shortened footnotes, {{Use shortened footnotes}} should be used instead of this template.

Wikipedia articles that use Harvard referencing citation style, either because of the first main contributor rule or closely related subject field, were tagged with {{Use Harvard referencing}}. The template facilitates article maintenance by enabling bots to recognize use of this format and by adding the article to the hidden category Use Harvard referencing. The template is invisible except in edit mode.

Use of this template was part of a continuing effort to monitor the citation formats used in articles, to assist in maintaining consistent formatting within an article. It is not a temporary "cleanup" template. Therefore, do not remove the template without valid reason, such as a determination that the article uses or should use a different citation format.

After being tagged, and bearing in mind article evolution, a WP:bot can eventually be programmed to clean up formats periodically, correcting any new introductions since its last visit, and updating the visit date on the {{Use Harvard referencing}} template. Note that no such bot exists at this point in time.
