Add Harvard AGPS Referencing Style in MS Word

Harvard AGPS Referencing Style

Harvard AGPS is a popular variant of Harvard referencing and citation style. While MS Word comes with many bibliography styles prepackaged, there is no option for Harvard AGPS.

But, don’t worry. It is absolutely possible to add Harvard Referencing Style as an additional bibliography style to MS Word. Just follow the given below steps.

Step 1

Download the addon file by clicking here.

Unzip the file and keep it in a safe location on your system.

Step 2

In the second step, we have to place this file and other bibliography files in XML format.

If you are using MS Word up to 2010 version

It is pretty straightforward. Just go to the C drive, then program files, then Program file or Program file(x86) based on whether you are using a 32 bit or 64-bit setup. In my case, I am using a 32-bit setup. You have to find the Microsoft Office folder, as shown in the image below.

I am using Office 2013, so it shows Office 15.

Make sure to restart MS Office if it was opened during the process. If it was already closed, you are already good to go. When you open your MS Word, you will see this additional referencing style in the Citations and Bibliography tab, as shown in the image below.

Please note that the above steps are intended for MS Word version 2010 or below. So, if you are using version 2013 onward, the method won’t work. I have installed it through an alternative method that I will explain below.

MS Word version 2013 onwards

This method is for you if you are using MS Word version 2013, 2016 or 2019.
