# Formatting bibliography with biblatex for harvard style [duplicate]

I'm trying to print a bibliography for my masters thesis using bibLatex, however there are some discrepancies with the setup I'm using. for instance, the book bibliography entry prints the location before the place of publication, when it should be the opposite, the journal entry puts the journal in double quotations instead of a single quotations, etc.

I'm pretty new to Latex and I've been all over to start formatting my bibliography, so excuse me if I have made some mistakes in my setup but here it is

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{book}
\usepackage[backend=biber,
style=authoryear,
uniquename=false,
hyperref=auto,
date=year,
natbib=true,
url=false,
isbn=false]{biblatex}

\begin{document}
\include{Cover}
\begin{singlespace}
\cleardoublepage
\tableofcontents
\clearpage
\listoffigures
\clearpage
\listoftables
\clearpage
\include{Abstract}
\clearpage
\end{singlespace}
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\setcounter{page}{1}

\include{introduction}
\cleardoublepage
\include{literature_review}
\cleardoublepage
\include{methodology}
\cleardoublepage
\include{technical}
\cleardoublepage

\chapter{References}

• ... So we can only help you achieve the style you need if you tell us exactly what needs to be changed. Please remember that question on TeX.SX should ideally be about a single issue only, so please split up the things you need to change into separate questions. I'm sure many of your question will already have been asked and answered elsewhere (but I fully admit that previous questions can be hard to find, so please do not let this be a reason to discourage you from asking these questions!). A first point of contact for biblatex questions is the lovely tex.stackexchange.com/q/12806. Jan 26 at 16:21
• \defbibheading{bibliography}[\bibname] is wrong. \defbibheading takes two mandatory arguments. The call is missing the actual definition of the heading. Remove that line and change \chapter{References}\printbibliography[heading=bibliography] to \printbibliography[heading=bibnumbered, title=References]. The biblatex option hyperref=auto, is the default and can be dropped. \renewcommand*{\nameyeardelim}{\addcomma\space} should be \DeclareDelimFormat{nameyeardelim}{\addcomma\space}. Jan 26 at 16:23
• Since there is no well-defined "Harvard style" the question cannot be answered as-is. But I think it can reasonably be seen as asking for general biblatex advice, which would make it a perfect duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/q/12806. If you have more specific issues, just ask new questions. Feb 4 at 7:29
