When in Doubt Cite!


From Indiana University School of Education How to Recognize Plagiarism

"Side-by-side examples of correctly and incorrectly paraphrased and cited content. Paraphrasing is not simply about swapping out words for other words (finding new synonyms) but actually changing the structure and flow of the content into your own words or the meaning you have derived from the content."
