I have to do an essay with a literature review but im not allowed to use textbooks are references.

Would i be able to use a journal as a secondary reference to refer to the original theory?

E.g The journal refers to the original theory from a text book?

So the intext citation would be (Collins 2008 cited in Smith 2012 p45)


and then the reference would on be for the journal i read:


Smith, S. 2012 Title of books ...

Citing in text

e.g. Kennedy (2009) suggests…

e.g. According to Kennedy's interpretation of research conducted by Bonwell and Eison in 1991, "Students learn more effectively by actively analyzing, discussing and applying content in meaningful ways, rather than by passively absorbing information" (Kennedy 2009, p.225).

Reference at the end of work

Author's Surname, INITIALS., Year of publication. Title of article. Title of journal, Volume number and (part number), Page numbers of contribution.

Kennedy, R.R., 2009. The power of in-class debates. Active learning in higher education, 10 (3), 225-236.

If there are multiple authors, you must list all in the reference list at the end of your work e.g. Kennedy, R.R. and Smith, T., 2010.
