4. Common abbreviations used in the Harvard system (note punctuation)
In the text:
- et al. (et alii/alia, Latin, 'and others'). This term may be used in text to indicate more than two authors. Typically, the full list of authors is mentioned first (Smith, Jones and Harbin 1973), and then subsequently the authors may be referred to as (Smith et al. 1973). Usually the term et al. does not appear in the references list - the full list of authors is given.
In the references list:
- ed. (short form of 'editor').
- eds (short form of 'editors').
