CEMS Harvard Referencing Style: Data Sets

Data sets

  • Include author’s name for dataset references where possible (an author may be a corporate body or organisation responsible for creating, producing or publishing a webpage or website).
  • Where there is no identifiable author or authoring body, use the title of the dataset.
  • Raw data from a dataset should not be quoted directly but should instead be summarised.
