Remember that plagiarizing is not just about taking another’s words; it is about taking ideas too! You must always cite and reference sources for any information that you did not think of. For example: data, statistics, original names for concepts, graphics, tables, and studies. Here is a quick guide to the difference between a paraphrase (no quotation marks) and a quote (quotation marks needed): A direct quote is taking a key phrase or two or more words in order from an outside source. Quotation marks are necessary. A paraphrase is rewording the idea of the original passage – it is NOT rearranging the author’s words. Quotation marks are not necessary. Rearranging, changing or leaving out a word or two from an original passage does not make it a paraphrase – the entire passage must be reworded. Tips for honest writing: Read a passage, and then write your interpretation of it with the book or text closed. Do not attempt to paraphrase with the passage right in front of you if you feel unsure about how to do it. When in doubt, just take the sentence and cite it as a direct quote using the exact words. Have no more than 20% paraphrases or direct quotes in your work. Most of the writing should be your own words and ideas.
