Read the avoid plagiarism section below.
Do not just copy and paste from the Internet. Try to paraphrase what is being described in the source. Below is an example of the difference between direct quote, copying (beware of plagiarism), and paraphrase.
I am reading for an assignment, and I come across the following in CIO.com.
Government agencies and smaller businesses may be moving to low-cost online productivity suites like Google Apps, but enterprises, mostly because of security fears and Office compatibility, are still going the desktop route.
I decide to use it in my paper. So the following is from my paper:
Burdened with the rising cost of software, government agencies and smaller businesses may be moving to low-cost online productivity suites like Google Apps, but enterprises, mostly because of security fears and Office compatibility, are still going the desktop route. (O’Neill).
Is this correct form? No, what follows is correct:
Burdened with the rising cost of software, “government agencies and smaller businesses may be moving to low-cost online productivity suites like Google Apps, but enterprises, mostly because of security fears and Office compatibility, are still going the desktop route” (O’Neill, 2010).
Ok, say you write this:
Burdened with the rising cost of software, government agencies and smaller businesses may be selecting low-cost online productivity suites like Google Apps, but out of security fears and Office compatibility, many enterprises are still going the desktop route (O’Neill, 2010).
Do you think you are paraphrasing? No. This is the correct version:
Burdened with the rising cost of software, “government agencies and smaller businesses may be [selecting] low-cost online productivity suites like Google Apps, but … out of security fears and Office compatibility,” many enterprises “are still going the desktop route” (O’Neill, 2010).
See how awkward that writing is? Just quote the original. The problem however, is when students drop quotes and copying from source because they believe that by changing a word or two it is no longer a quote. Paraphrasing is using the idea, not the words. For instance, our practice sentence paraphrased:
O’Neill (2010) makes a keen observation regarding the reluctance of many agencies to embrace open source applications, namely, they are too risky.
Here is the correct form for APA citation:
O’Neill, S. (2010, January 19). Microsoft Office 2010: Three Upgrade Tips for Enterprises. Retrieved from http://www.cio.com/article/518213/Microsoft_Office_2010_Three_Upgrade_Tips_for_Enterprise
