Hey guys new user here University of Western Sydney, I love the concept but I find that the in document citations are wrongly formatted. After reading the official Harvard style guide which gives examples of in document styles
Direct quote example
Cowie (1996, p. 91) argues that ‘socialism rejected the liberal ideals of individualism and
Cowie (1996) suggests that unlike capitalism, socialism promotes the good of the whole before
the good of the individual.
I actually find that my Endnote x4 4.0.2 that when i try to insert a citation this is how it looks
(Jokisaari and Nurmi 2009) with both the author and the year inside the brackets my professor confirms that this is also wrong.
Can anyone help?
EndNote will initially create the citation so it appears as: (Jokisaan and Nurmi, 2009). This type of citation is commonly used at the end of sentences, paragraphs, and mid-sentence when the author name is omitted from the text… However, as your two examples show having the author name appear in text offers a different option. To achieve this format you’ll need to edit the citation to Exclude Author and then manually type-in the author names so the citation appears as: Jokisaan and Nurmi (2009).
To edit the citation, place your cursor on the citation and either: 1) right-click to obtain a submenu, then select EDIT CITATIONS, MORE; or 2) access the EndNote toolbar in MS Word, click EDIT & MANAGE CITATIONS.

Also, your professor is wrong to say it is wrong. It all depends on how you want to integrate the in-text citation within the sentence. Either including the author within the syntax of the sentence or parenthetically outside of it (which in fact is more common) is correct. Examples from one Harvard style guide are:
A recent study (Elder 1995) found that rock samples…
Elder (1995, p. 14) claims that ‘…’.
By the way, I don’t think there is such a beast as an “official” Harvard style. Harvard-style referencing simply means the author-date in-text citation method (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parenthetical_referencing). To that many and various organisations and publications have invented a “Harvard style”.
