Ways to use Peoples Work but not Plagiarizing

Quotations

  • Quotations are the exact words of an author, copied directly from a source, word for word. Quotes must be cited.
  • Having to many quotes is the same as copying and pasting. Some ones work and claiming it as yours. Your paper can't be more than 50% quotes.

Paraphrasing

  • Paraphrasing means rephrasing the words of an author, putting his/her thoughts in your own word.
  • Must be cited.
  • Simply changing a few words is not paraphrasing.

Summarizing
