Paraphrasing Plagiarism – Paraphrasing plagiarism is committed when someone copies or summarizes ideas from an original work, and represents the ideas as one's own (Indiana University School of Education 2014).


Note: if the summarization contains a string of 7 words copied from the original work, this type of plagiarism would be considered word-for-word.


To avoid paraphrasing plagiarism, you must:

a) Place the author’s last name and year in parenthesis in the sentence.

b) Place the page number where the quote was attained or the URL if the quote is attained from a web-page.

c) List the source correctly in the bibliography.
