Plagiarism, Paraphrasing, and Bibliographies/References: Paraphrasing

What Is The Difference?

›Quotations must be identical to the original, using a narrow segment of the source. They must match the source document word for word and must be attributed to the original author.

›Paraphrasing involves putting a passage from source material into your own words. A paraphrase must also be attributed to the original source. Paraphrased material is usually shorter than the original passage, taking a somewhat broader segment of the source and condensing it slightly.
