I just watched webinar on research ethics. Do you have any advice on how to do paraphrasing and not be guilty of plagiarizing? I find it difficult to tell the difference.

Dear John,

I would recommend this guide by Michel Roig, "Avoiding plagiarism, self-plagiarism, and other questionable writing practices: A guide to ethical writing: https://www.umsl.edu/studentresearch/files/pdfs/roig-avoiding-plagiarism.pdf

In particular, check out the final section, which has an exercise on how to tell the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarism.

Best wishes

Andy
