In this paper, we consider an inverse problem of identifying an unknown time dependent source function in a time-fractional diffusion-wave equation. First, some basic properties of the shifted Jacobi polynomials (SJPs) are presented. Then, the analytical solution of the direct problem is given and used to obtain an approximation of the unknown source function in a series of SJPs. Due to ill-posedness of this inverse problem, the Tikhonov regularization method with Morozov's discrepancy principle criterion is applied to find a stable solution. After that, an error bound is obtained for the approximation of the unknown source function. Finally, some numerical examples are provided to show effectiveness and robustness of the proposed algorithm.
