From the Purdue OWL website, when quoting in indirect source using APA style:

If you use a source that was cited in another source, name the original source in your signal phrase. List the secondary source in your reference list and include the secondary source in the parentheses.

Example:

Johnson argued that...(as cited in Smith, 2003, p. 102).

Note: When citing material in parentheses, set off the citation with a comma, as above. Also, try to locate the original material and cite the original source.

 

For more in-depth help with citations, consult with your instructor or a writing tutor at the Academic Support Center.
