How do I cite someone who is citing someone else (a secondary source)?
It is always best to site the original source of any work. Therefore, if you are using a source that cites another source - find that original source. However, if that is not possible for some reason, this is how you cite a secondary source -
Primary source (as cited in Secondary Source Author, Year) ...
Laurel and Hardy's study (as cited in Ono & Lennon, 1979) ...
Cite ONLY the secondary source in the reference list, as this is the only source you actually used.
