This is version 2.0.5 of the harvard family of bibliographic styles.
It is a bug fix of 2.0 which was a major rewrite to bring the sty file into
line with the new latex described in ``The LaTeX Companion''.  Due to the
efforts of Thorsten Schnier (thorsten@archsci.arch.su.edu.au) it incorporates
support for the LaTeX to html translator by Nikos Drakos

It includes a fixes by Berwin A. Turlach (berwin@alphasun.anu.edu.au) for
problems with \AtBeginDocument introduced in the latest version of LaTeX2e
and problems with the \nocite command.

A new style apsr.bst (American Political Science Review) is enclosed

NB.  The file harvard.sty makes considerable use of features in the new latex
that were not present in latex version 2.09 and is, therefore, not compatible
with that version.  However, the *.bbl files produced by the various bst files
should be still useable with latex version 2.09.

harvard – Harvard citation package for use with 2e

This is a re-implementation, for 2e, of the original Harvard package. The bundle contains the package, several styles, and a ‘Perl package’ for use with 2HTML.

Harvard is an author-year citation style (all but the first author are suppressed in second and subsequent citations of the same entry); the package defines several variant styles:

  • apsr.bst for the American Political Science Review;
  • agsm.bst for Australian Government publications;
  • dcu.bst from the Design Computing Unit of the University of Sydney;
  • kluwer.bstwhich aims at the format preferred in Kluwer publications;
  • nederlands.bst which deals with sorting Dutch names with prefixes (such as van) according to Dutch rules,
  • together with several styles whose authors offer no description of their behaviour.
