Please refer to the relevant reference type (book, journal article etc.) in the MMU Harvard guide for instruction on what to use when no author’s name is provided on the source.

In many cases the organisation’s name is used in place of the author, for example, for online sources such as webpages.  In some instances the publication title is used in place of the author, for example journal articles and newspaper articles, where no author/reporter’s name is present.

For further information see the section entitled 'Sources with no author' under the MMU Harvard reference types A-Z list of the MMU Harvard referencing guide.
