An inverse problem of identifying an unknown space-dependent source term in a time-space fractional parabolic equation is considered in this paper. Under reasonable boundedness assumptions about the source function, a Hölder-type stability estimate of optimal order is proved. To regularize the inverse source problem, a mollification regularization method is applied. Error estimates of the regularized solution are proved for both a priori and a posteriori rules for choosing the mollification parameter. A direct numerical method for solving the regularized problem is proposed and numerical examples are presented to illustrate its effectiveness.
