Google Scholar is not a database, it's a search engine that searches various databases, books, articles etc. and therefore it is not the source of the articles you have found through it. In order to reference these items correctly you will need to click on the link and use the original website you are taken to as the source.

Please use our guide to Harvard referencing to ensure you are referencing in the correct way for each format type. For example if the document appears as a freely available PDF please reference it as a PDF, alternatively if it appears on a webpage, please use the website option.
