Ideally, you should find that originally cited source and cite it directly.
This is citing an indirect source (secondary source), and here's how you do it:
- Name the original author/source in your sentence.
- List the author of the secondary source where you found the information in parentheses.
- In your bibliography, cite the secondary source since that is the one you consulted.
So, if you are citing Maslow as presented in an article by Garcia, you would write:
- Maslow claims that... (as cited in Garcia, 2010, p. 101)
In your bibliography, you would have:
- Garcia, J. (2010). [etc.]
