Citing Indirect Sources Using APA Style

Posted by lrath on January 22, 2009

You are reading an article you found in a library database, and the author of the article quotes/cites another person’s work that you would like to incorporate into your paper. Who do you cite and how?

If you want to use a source that was cited in another source (a secondary source) for a paper you are writing ….

  1. Name the original source in your signal phrase
  2. Include the secondary source in your parenthetical citation, preceded by the words “as cited in”
  3. List the secondary source in your reference list/bibliography

In this APA example, Mills is the secondary source:
Jordan argued that …. (as cited in Mills, 2007, p. 70).

If you are required to use another style, such as MLA, Chicago, or Turabian, please refer to the respective style manual on how to cite indirect sources (this information could be listed under “indirect sources”, “citing sources”, or “in-text parentheticals”, also.)
