One important use of formatting guidelines is to standardize the way you incorporate and cite sources in your papers. Sources are incorporated into papers as quotations, summaries, or paraphrases. The source is represented indirectly, but still with proper citation. Some people have the misconception that if they change the wording of a source, as we do in a paraphrase, they no longer must cite the source. This lets readers see the depth of your research.

Published on April 18, by Courtney Gahan. Revised on March 9, To paraphrase a source, you have to rewrite a passage without changing the meaning of the original text. You also have to be careful not to use wording that is too similar to the original. Otherwise, you could be at risk of committing plagiarism.
When you paraphrase, you use your own words. This is usually preferable to direct quotes because the information is written in your own style, but you must be careful not to change the meaning. When paraphrasing, you must still acknowledge where you got the idea from by including a parenthetical citation. When citing paraphrased information, APA requires you to include the author and date.

While some reviewers really but thought into it and offer genuinely constructive critiques, too many just type random characters into the rubric just so the computer will mark them as having done the required reviews.
