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)

Ibid unhooked

Here is the definition of "ibid" which I have seen most profoundly used in many literature I have read, but never knew what it meant until today.

Ibid as outlined by Wikipedia

Ibid. (Latin, short for ibidem, "the same place") is the term used to provide an endnote or footnote citation or reference for a source that was cited in the preceding endnote or footnote. It is similar in meaning to idem (meaning something that has been mentioned previously; the same) abbreviated "Id.," which is commonly used in legal citation.
