Not satisfied with EndNote's Harvard style?

There are many variations to the Harvard style of referencing, and the Harvard output style which comes with EndNote differs to the variation used at Bond (which is based on the author-date system described in the AGPS Style Manual for Authors, Editors and Printers).

If you're using EndNote and you want a Harvard output style which conforms to that of the Style Manual for Authors, Editors and Printers, you can download this one from the University of Queensland library website: uq_harvard_2002_v8+.ens

Save the style into your EndNote styles folder (typically C:\Program Files\EndNote X4\Styles ), then open your Style Manager in EndNote (Edit | Output Styles | Open Style Manager) and tick it so that it appears on your drop-down list of favourite styles.

The University of Queensland Library also provide additional instructions to help you use the style correctly, and it would be wise to consult this to ensure that you produce properly formatted Harvard style references from your EndNote library.
