LSBU Harvard Referencing: NICE guidelines

Best Practice tips

Write the corporate author’s name in the text in full the first time you use it. You can use the acronym NICE in subsequent in-text citations. If you go to a sub-section of the guidance, you can still use the format above.

You don’t need to mention each subheading as long as you provide the URL to the page with the specific section you are using.

Format of the reference

You will need:

  • Corporate author's name
  • Year of publication, or year of update
  • Title of guidance: type of guidance and [its letternumber combination]
  • Web address
  • Date accessed
