The reference list is the last section of the report. It is standard academic practice to provide details of all the references you mentioned (cited) in your report at the end of the report, but not the ones you may have read but didn't mention.

References are listed in alphabetical order in the Harvard system. For each reference give the author's name, the year of publication, the full title of the book or article and the publication details. References with the same first author should be listed chronologically. In some courses, especially in the early undergraduate years, when you are listing a textbook, you will need to include the chapter or page numbers where you found the relevant information.
