How do you cite a source that you found in another source?

How do you cite a source that you found in another source?

Your in-text citation should include both authors: the author(s) of the original source and the author(s) of the secondary source. For example: (Habermehl, 1985, as cited in Kersten, 1987). In your reference list you should provide the details of the secondary source (the source you read).

What do you put in a citation if there is no author MLA?

When a source has no known author, use a shortened title of the work instead of an author name. Place the title in quotation marks if it’s a short work (such as an article) or italicize it if it’s a longer work (e.g. plays, books, television shows, entire Web sites) and provide a page number if it is available.

What should come first when writing the name of the publisher?

Articles by individual authors that appear in such works should list the last name and first initial of the author, followed by the publication date and chapter title. Next, the editors should be noted, followed by the title of the book and the page numbers of the chapter. The publisher’s name goes last.

Can the author and publisher be the same?

When the author and publisher are the same, use Author as publisher. When you list the pages of the chapter in parentheses, use pp. If a book or book chapter has a DOI, provide the DOI information at the end.

Is publisher same as copyright?

An author can either retain their copyright, or assign it to a publishing company. If they assign the copyright, then the publishing company now is the owner of the copyright. The copyright owner can publish the book at a much later date. Publication isn’t required for a work to be eligible for copyright protection.
