information on how to cite sources used in your research according to APA Style

Citing Indirect/Secondary Sources

Whenever possible, take material from the original source, not a secondhand one. Sometimes only the indirect source is available,

Include the secondary source in the reference list; in the text, name the original work, and cite the secondary work

Citation In-Text Example:  Seidenberg and McClelland’s (1990) study (as cited in Coltheart, Curtis, & Haller, 1993) reinforces this notion.
