How to prevent plagiarism
Common Paraphrasing Errors
Paraphrasing Rules
like comment share
We are allowed to use common terms, such as the author’s name or topic.
No quotation marks are necessary when we use these.

If we borrow any key words, we must put them in quotations.

We must box in the source by introducing source first and then citing at the end.

Steps to Paraphrasing Properly

If we switch words around we are O.K..

If somebody did not “say it,” then they are my words.

I have learned about the topic somewhere else; I don’t need to cite it.

This comes from my own expertise.

I don’t know what the article is about, but I switched the words around in this one part;
they are my words.

I don’t think we have to cite a paraphrase. We only cite quotes.

Reread the original passage until you understand its full meaning.
Set the original aside, and write your paraphrase on a note card.
Check your rendition with the original to make sure that your version accurately expresses all the essential information in a new form.
Use quotation marks to identify any unique term or phraseology you have borrowed exactly from the source.
Record the source (including the page) on your note card so that you can credit it easily if you decide to incorporate the material into your paper.
Note Taking for Research
What is Plagiarism?
In an instructional setting, plagiarism occurs when a writer uses someone else’s language, ideas, or other original (not common-knowledge) material without acknowledging its source.

Notetaking, MLA, and Plagiarism

Always cite and document other people's words, ideas, and other intellectual
property that you use in your papers and that influence your ideas.

Keep track of citation information as you do your research.

Take good notes and clearly mark them as quotes, summaries, paraphrases
or your original thoughts to help you avoid accidentally plagiarizing.

Always cite quotes, paraphrases and summaries.

Paraphrases and summaries do not include your analysis and interpretation—
always make a clear distinction between your thoughts and someone else's.

When in doubt, ask your teacher or librarian.

Use sparingly
Use most often
3 Types of Notes
Paraphrasing is when we borrow ideas, language, or phrases from another person’s text;
we write these using our own language and sentence patterns.

Think translation!
