Second Hand Referencing

Follow-up to Ibid unhooked from Saya's Ramblings...

When you have read Book A that refers to something published in Book B

You have only read Book A but want to quote the information from Book B that you have not read

You reference what you have read – Book A, citing the author of Book B

Johnson (2005), cited by Smith (2007: 56), states that referencing can be complicated.

You cite the reference by Smith (2007)

In the assignment text

- Referencing “can be very time consuming” (Johnson, 2005, cited by Smith, 2007:54).

          NB: Cite the page number where the author is cited

In the reference list

- You cite the reference by Smith (2007)
