  • Chose when you are drafting the paper if you would like to quote or paraphrase.
paraphrasing can be tricky
Paraphrasing can be Tricky
  • Don't copy the original author's style or wording.
  • Even if you have a citation, such borrowing would be considered plagiarism.
  • Use vocabulary and sentence structures that your reader would recognize as your work.
  • Think about the information and jot down the source's main points.
  • Write your paraphrase without looking at the original.
  • Compare your paraphrase with the original
  • Have you simply changed a few words to synonyms?
  • Being handy with a thesaurus is not enough to make the sentence yours.
  • Make sure to put quotation marks around phrases with exact sequences of words
  • re-write until the entire paraphrase is your words.
  • Have you retained the meaning of the original?
  • Academic honesty requires you to represent other's work accurately in your writing.
what not to cite
What NOT to cite
  • common knowledge: basic information that can be found in a lot of places and is well-known
  • historical dates: this is public information that does not need to be cited
  • a well-known argument or theory: an idea/issue that is commonly discussed or debated
  • a universal proverb: age old proverbs or sayings, such as "Give credit where credit is due."
  • Rule of thumb:
  • If you find the same piece of information three times or more, don’t cite it.
