How do I cite a source that is quoted in another source?

Scenario: You have read a journal article written by J ohn Smith. In the article, J ohn Smith includes a
quote from J ane Adams' book Chicken Little (which you have not used in your own research). You
would like to include J ane Adams' quote in your own paper. APA cautions you to use secondary
sources only when the original work is unavailable, out of print or not in English (APA 6.17). In this
case, you do not have access to J ane Adams' book, Chicken Little so you'll have to use an indirect

1. Include an entry for the source you have in hand (in this case the journal) in your reference list.
2. In your parenthetical (in-text) reference after the quote, credit the original source (in this case
the book) adding the words "as cited in..." to show that you have quoted a secondary source,
rather than the original.

For example:

group has a common fate to its members, a mutual benefit for members, social structure, group
processes, and self-categorization. Common fate means that the whole team wins or the whole team
loses. It is the team identity. Mutual benefit refers to the victory, the individual recognitions, and the
privileges of participation in the group. The social structure incorporates the roles, positions, and the
status of respective members. The group processes refers to the communication, cooperation, task
performance, and the social interactions within the group. This is personal and task interdependence.
Self-categorization is the individual value a person feels in the collective group, making the person
