Improve the Cite them Right Harvard CSL file to correct errors
Cite them Right Harvard does not display correctly. I have a 2 page list of errors! e.g. Surname, First name, when it should be Surname, initial. In journals the publisher appears.
Please work with Cite them Right Online to fix this as it is used by multiple libraries in the UK.
Just had an email from the person who owns the Cite them Right Harvard CSL file who says it works fine. The fault is with how Primo is using it. The problem has been referred to the second tier support team who ever they are to fix. Will keep people posted on this.
Really dissapointing. Please can the Primo team and the RefWorks team talk to each other and share their best practice to provide a quality customer solution?

The 'harvard-cite-them-right' CSL style in Github is full of errors. The non-CSL 'Harvard cite them right' style in RefWorks is good. ExLibris have just confirmed to me that the Primo team have no plans to use RefWorks styles in Primo. This is a disappointing lack of synchronicity.
Agree Primo using the non-CSL file from RefWorks would be an immediate massive quick win for Primo. Please can this be done for this academic year?
We would really welcome this update as since installing Primo VE we can now tailor the citation styles to those we use most. But the current CTR is awful.
Citation styles in Primo
We have had confirmation from exlibris that:
There are two Harvard Cite Them Right Citation styles in RefWorks:
1. The one marked as a CSL style is from the CSL github: https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles/blob/master/harvard-cite-them-right.csl
2. The non-CSL style is created by the RefWorks team based on the style book
Unfortunately it is the CSL one in Primo. The quickest option would be for them to use the Refworks created version, which is far better, in Primo.
