The volume number is for a report. I wrote the reference the same as for a report but don’t know where to fit the volume number (for example vol.145). Its a report from an advisory services. I know it is not common but they included volume numbers in their reports. Any ideas on how I should deal with this?

As mentioned previously and as set out in the ‘Golden Rules’, references in the text and list must match and every document must have a distinct and unique designator. So if you have done this that fulfils most of the requirements. The other most important criterion is that the reader can locate the document. So if you have provided the link to the actual document then this too is fulfilled. Should it link to a more generic website then you could provide along with the name of the report the volume number. Otherwise as you are not doing a PhD this is more than adequate for the RAP -so I suggest you stop obsessing about what in the grand scheme of things is a minor detail!December 16, 2018 at 7:23 am
hello maam iwould like to know about is ibid valid in harward referencing as my dad said it ok to go with ibid but my mentor says its notDecember 16, 2018 at 5:07 pm
It is permissible to us ibidim (ibid.) [meaning “in the same place,”] in the RAP report provided it complies with the following:
Use “ibid.” (no italics) to refer to the only work cited in the preceding note/ sentence. It may or may not include a page number (Ibid., 43.). Ibid. is never used if the preceding note
consists of more than one source.
[Please note your query should have been posted on the Harvard Referencing thread as it is the more relevant topic than competitor analysis!!]
