In-Text and Reference Lists for Lancaster University - Harvard

Hello,

I am using Lancaster University - Harvard style, and I cannot afford switching to any other variance of Harvard as I must comply with the university's requirements.
I have three distinct issues, and was hoping you could please provide guidance / quick fix or any kind of support.

Issue #1: Same author with several works in different years
-- The bibliography lists authors alphabetically (last name) which is perfect. However, in the case of one author with multiple works, it uses the alphabetical order of the titles to sort, whereas I need it to be ordered following the year / date chronology.
Issue #2: Same author with several works in the same year
-- The in-text citation does not add any suffix to the year (i.e. letters a / b / c), which should normally be allocated based on the order of appearance in the text.
-- The bibliography does not distinguish between these, and does not add any letters. It should normally include the letters as well, and be ordered on that basis.

Sorry for tagging you @adamsmith , I noticed you saved so many people in different discussions. I was hoping you could please help here too.

Many thanks in advance,
Narjisse
  • For 1., do you have a source for that requirement? I don't see anything in the guide for Lancaster Harvard
    2. should just work with a/b/c with the existing document-- can you try in a new document for testing?
  • Hello @adamsmith ,

    Many thanks for your super quick reply and willingness to support.

    For #1: indeed, there is no specific mention of the chronology requirement here: http://lancaster.libguides.com/harvard/reference-list
    It is not explicit though, hence my confusion. However if you're saying from your side that it's not. Then it shall be kept the way it is.

    For #2: it does not work at all - neither in the in-text citation, nor in the reference list generated. I tried several times in a new document, and here is another test I run this morning. I am pasting it below exactly as done by Zotero:

    Could you please help / advise ? Your time and support are much appreciated.

  • Hello @adamsmith

    Any advice on point 2? So sorry as I am kind of desperate here :(
    Can it be fixed in any way ?

    Many thanks once again,
    Narjisse
  • (adam, something is off with the style, but I can't see what it is. add-year-suffix is set to true, but it is not showing. Can you have a look?)
  • I just pushed out what I think should be a fix -- that'll be available on zotero.org/style shortly. Note that the style has been putting full page ranges for articles and chapters into in-text citations, which makes no sense: Where referring to a specific page or page range, you should add that through the add citation dialog (we refer to this as a locator: https://www.zotero.org/support/word_processor_plugin_usage#customizing_cites )
  • @damnation thank you so much for the comment, and @adamsmith thanks a million for your tremendous support !! It's working now, hooray ! Just one last small issue though -if it's ok for you to look into it. The letter suffix is not generated based on the order the reference is cited. It generates for instance "b" before "a" in the in-text, and then in the bibliography it lists the references based on a/b/c.

    This is an example of what I get at the moment:

    This is the first test (Caliskan, 2007b) and the second test (Caliskan, 2007a).

    Any chance this can be fixed ? THANKS A MILLION once more : )

    Well, the suffixes are given as per the sorting in the bibliography (sorted by authors, then by titles).
    But the guidelines show an example that sorts it by citation-number.

    Updated style already on repository.
  • OMG, this literally made my day ! It is finally working as it should. Thanks a million @damnation , really cannot thank you enough.

    Cheers,
