What is a Secondary Source? A secondary source is considered a resource (like your textbook, for example) that contains a reference to another (primary) source (like an academic study, or published statistics).
You did not actually view the primary source, you only viewed the secondary source.
To cite a secondary source, provide the original source in the text only and the secondary source in parentheses utilizing the “as cited in” phrase. List only the secondary source in the reference list.
