HFRP's Family Involvement Research Digests and Early Childhood Digests summarize research written and published by non-HFRP authors and/or written by HFRP authors but published by organizations other than HFRP. Whenever possible, we encourage you to seek out these original research publications and cite directly from them. To help you to do this, we provide citations for the original research publications within the digests.
If you are unable to find the original research publication, please make sure to mention the original source in your writing. Please include the secondary source (that is, the profile) in your parenthetical citation, following the words "as cited in," and in your reference list. For example:
In a recent study, Barbara Starkie examined the motivation of parents to use SIS portals and how they used the information they were able to access (as cited in Starkie, 2013).
The citation in your reference list would appear as follows:
Starkie, B. (2013). Data sharing through parent portals: An exploration of parental motivation, data use, and the promise of prolonged parent involvement. Family Involvement Network of Educators (FINE) Newsletter, 5(2). Retrieved from http://www.hfrp.org/publications-resources/publications-series/family-involvement-research-digests/data-sharing-through-parent-portals-an-exploration-of-parental-motivation-data-use-and-the-promise-of-prolonged-parent-involvement
Out-of-School Time Program Research and Evaluation Profile
The profiles in the OST Database summarize research studies and evaluations written by non-HFRP authors. Whenever possible, we encourage you to seek out these original research studies and evaluations and cite directly from them. To help you to do this, we provide citations for the research studies and evaluations within the profiles.
If you are unable to find the original research study or evaluation, please make sure to mention the original source in your writing. Include the secondary source (that is, the profile) in your parenthetical citation, following the words "as cited in," and in your reference list. For example:
In their evaluation of 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Mark Dynarski and Mary Moore found that nine out of ten centers provided homework help (as cited in Harvard Family Research Project, n.d.).
The citation in your reference list would appear as follows:
Harvard Family Research Project. (n.d.). A profile of the evaluation of the 21st century community learning centers—national. Cambridge, MA: Author. Retrieved from http://www.gse.harvard.edu/hfrp/profile.
