Hi Sui Yein,

It sounds like you are trying to citing another source that the journal article is citing?

If so, the Library recommends that your in-text citation refer only to the journal article you actually read, but that you use the sentence itself to make it clear who the original source is.

You can see examples of this in our Harvard UTS Referencing Guide:
