Cite Them Right Harvard style


Kindly assist me on how I can customize zotero as my university requires this;
1. How I can insert an in text citation ie with no brackets on the author Noordzij, et al., (2010)

2. I wish to add the first second and third author then et al, "[Online] Available at:" and "Date accessed:" on the bibliography i.e

Noordzij, M., Tripepi, G., and Dekker, F. W., et al. (2010). 'Sample Size Calculations: Basic Principles and Common Pitfalls'. Nephrol Dial Transplant [Online] Available at: (Accessed April 27th 2020) (2010).

  • Issue one has nothing to do with the CSL style, but how you use Zotero:
    1. See "Suppress Authors: Using Authors in the Text" on this page:


    Is this style you are making for a separate journal?

    2a. You'd modify "et-al-min="4" et-al-use-first="1"" to be "et-al-min="4" et-al-use-first="3""

    2b. That's a bit more complex and also depends what else you want/don't want in the style.
    You could modify the access macro by removing the first if statemenet (if DOI, print DOI) and put what is in the else-if (if URL...) into the if statement. That then achieves the above, but will remove DOIs for any articles you'd want it.
