Q. How do I cite a source within another source?

I found a source within another article that I'm reading. How do I cite that source?


Part of ethical writing is giving credit to the appropriate author. While other styles have additional rules for citing a source within a source, SWS does not. 

SWS asks you cite the source that you have read.

Test Your Knowledge

Your textbook has an excerpt from an article. You want to quote or paraphrase the article in your assignment or discussion post. Should your your citation include information about the textbook or the article?

Answer - It depends!

  • If you have read the textbook, cite the textbook.
  • If you found the article and read that, cite the article.
