What are secondary sources?

Secondary sources are generally one or more steps removed from the event or time period, unlike primary sources, which they describe, summarise, or analyse. Academic articles and books unless created at the time of the event under investigation, are considered secondary sources. For further guidance on secondary sources, see the Learning Skills Hub.
