Should I cite the primary sources if I have come across them in a secondary source? When I read through an introduction of an original article by author S(2001), I found it a good source for my literature search. For instance, I came across the following paragraph: “Research has typically addressed modelling and imagery as separate and distinct process. However, several investigators have noted that modeling and imagery are actually quite similar (Druckman & Swets, 1988; Feltz & Landers, 1983; Housner, 1984; Mccullagh & Weiss, 2001; Ryan & Simons, 1983; Vogt, 1995). Here are my questions: I would like to know whether it’s okay to cite only the source from author S or whether I have to mention other sources that the author S had cited in his manuscript all together.

Performance Bond Definition A contract wherein a third-party, in exchange for a fee, secures another's fulfillment of a contract or performance of a duty. Related Terms: Bond, Surety Bond, Surety, Substantial Performance Also called, in some jurisdictions, a surety bond. In Trenton Works v Panalpina, Justice Nathanson of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court has before him a contract between Trenton and Panalpina to transport railway cars by ship from Halifax to Tanzania. That contract included this term: "as a guarantee of the full performance of all it's obligations under the contract, Trenton shall present to Panalpina a performance bond ...." Panalpina secured a performance bond in the amount of $2,927,574 from Halifax Insurance Company. One of the railway cars was damaged during loading and Trenton looked to Panalpania and the surety (Halifax Insurance Company) for damages. "[T]he general effect of a performance bond is the indemnification by the surety of the loss suffered by the creditor or obligee."

Why “as cited in” should be avoided in academic writing | Literacy, Languages and Leadership For my graduate students… and other readers: When you are referencing others’ work in our course, whehter it is on the discussion board, in your presentation or in your final paper, I urge you to find the primary sources for your citations. I will be upfront about this and say that I am not at all a fan of citing a work that somone else has cited. The reason for this is three-fold: You want to be sure that the “original” author actually exists. Earlier this year, I conducted an informal in-class experiment with a Master’s level class at the U of C. I tell my students, “My point to you is this: Please cite only primary sources in our course. The only exception to this would be original works of extreme rarity which are almost impossible to source without physically visiting historical archives.

French law for non french-speaking patrons - Legal translation tools Beta Phi Mu Headquarters Secondary Sources (aka How to Cite a Source You Found in Another Source) by Timothy McAdoo You’ve probably heard that you should avoid secondary sources when possible. It’s true—if you find great information being quoted or paraphrased somewhere, it’s well worth your effort to track down the original source so you can read it for yourself and therefore cite it directly. But why track down the original when you already have the quotes? First, by reading the full text of the original source, you can verify that the context of the quote supports the point you want to make. Second, by finding and reading the original source, you will become better informed about your research topic. If your primary source is an archival document (e.g., a diary, limited-circulation brochure or pamphlet, unpublished manuscript), see Section 7.10 of the APA Publication Manual (6th ed.) for citation and reference guidelines and examples. So when are secondary sources appropriate? It’s okay to cite a secondary source when you’ve exhausted the options for finding the original work.
