Reporting guidelines at Haaga-Helia

The reporting guidelines on MyNet provide instructions on writing reports and theses, using sources and managing references, as well as the layout of theses at Haaga-Helia.

The reporting guidelines specify Haaga-Helia's own citation style. However, you can also use the Harvard style available on RefWorks, if you mention it in the introduction of the report.It's also a good idea to check the use of the Harvard style with your thesis advisor.
