The following is advice on author-date style referencing of zines based on Harvard referencing style.

References for zines should be made up of the following elements:

  • Author’s Family Name, Initial(s) or Pseudonym
  • Year of publication (in brackets)
  • Title of zine (in italics)
  • Volume or Issue number (if applicable)
  • [zine]
  • Publisher (if known)

If the zine was from a library collection, e.g. our Liberate! zines collection then also add:

  • Location of Collection:
  • Name of Collection

Or, if the zine was accessed online then also add

  • Available from: Web Address
  • (Accessed: Date)
