How do I cite a source within my webtext?

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?


Answer

Some citation styles have additional rules for citing a source within a source, SWS does not. 

SWS always asks for a source list entry to provide enough information that your reader can reasonably find the same source.

Our Strayer textbooks may include article reprints or excerpts. Here are three possible source list entries for the source in the image below. Remember - there are often multiple correct ways to write a source list entry!
