Research papers can be published as different sources of information. How you reference a research paper will depend on what type of source the paper has been published as. Sometimes research papers are published as journal articles. You will be able to identify it as a journal article as a journal title, and volume, issue and page numbers will be present.

Journal articles and further sources of information are listed in the MMU Harvard referencing guide, including instruction and examples on how to cite and reference these sources. If you are unable to identify the source you are using, contact the library referencing team by emailing
