G'd morning,

There are two major academic traditions to deal with bibliographic
references - the Harvard system (or the Author/Date system) and the
Oxford system (or the Footnote system).

Since both systems are ofte described in within the same style guide, I
think it is better to refer to "systems of references" rather than
actual style guides. For example, both the Harvard and the Oxford system
are escribed in Chicago Manual of Style.

Best regards,
Mats Broberg
