    Hey all, sorry if this is in the wrong part of the forum - feel free to move so if needs be!

    I'm writing an essay, and i'm writing about a study by Thornton et al (1999), which is mentioned in a book not by him. So I know I need to cite the original source (being Thornton) and then the book it's in, but how do I lay it out?

    Any help appreciated! :suith: x

    Here's an example using Harvard.

    Smith (1995), has summarised Thornton et al (1999), to mean....

    or

    Thornton et al in their book (1999: 23) refer to the work of Smith (1995), who stated that...

    If you use MLA you will need to use 'qtd. in' (for 'quoted in'), followed by the author or originator name of the source you looked at.

    Or are you using numerical systems?
