Paraphrasing In Writing To Avoid Plagiarism : For Bloggers, Article Writers And Students

  • What is paraphrasing ?
Paraphrasing is a process of rewording of a sentence while retaining its original meaning.
According to Merriem-Wester dictionary-" A restatement of a text, passage, or work giving the meaning in another form[1]".
According to Purdue Online Writing Lab "Your own rendition of essential information and ideas expressed by someone else, presented in a new form[2]".
Examples -
Original-Students learn very easily by practical demonstrations.
Paraphrased- Hands on classes can make students learn effortlessly.
Now, paraphrased sentence can be used in your own article, essay, or in research paper by giving credit to an author, a website, a book or to a research paper. 
  • How to give credit to the authors?
 If  you are preparing to write an article, list the the sources you have read and  put at  the end of the article with the numbers like [1], [2], [3]...., such as, books, research papers, monograms, website contents, images, and video lectures, and write the number at the end of the sentence, for example, I  have read this sentence from a source [3] like, "Without proper citation, your paraphrase could be construed as plagiarism". First paraphrase it, like, it is compulsory for a writer to cite the source with paraphrase otherwise it may be considered as plagiarism [3], here number [3] is the source  where you have taken idea from and you will put the source with a number at the end in this case it is [3]. Furthermore, taking ideas from an article, a video, a website is not a offence, but it is necessary to paraphrase  before including in your article and  give credit to them and its also provides more authentication to your article. Moreover, the best example is Wikipedia in which you will see that in an article numbers like, [1], [2], [3],......... and in and at the end of article in References section the list of the original  sources from where idea is taken from
