- Use secondary sparingly, e.g., when the original text is not accessible.
- In the Reference List, record only the secondary source. Details about edition, volume number or chapter page range are placed in parentheses directly after the title, with the period after the parentheses, e.g., (2nd ed.). or (Rev. ed.). or (Vol.26).
- In the text, name the original work, and give a citation in parentheses for your secondary source. That is, if you did not read the work cited, list the reference for the work you did access in the Reference List, but in the text, after identifying the original work, put in parentheses the phrase as cited in followed by the authors' names for your source and the publication year of their work.
- Book titles are italicized.
- If pages are being directly referenced in the text, include the page number/s in the in-text citation after the year.
