Assignment: Plagiarism and Paraphrasing

The three-step process of paraphrasing consists of
interpreting an author’s original passage, rephrasing it (i.e., putting
it into your own words), and citing (i.e., giving credit to) the author.
In order to paraphrase correctly, you must consider the difference
between the original text and the re-wording while still maintaining the
original author’s meaning. In contrast to paraphrasing, the academic
crime of plagiarism occurs when a second writer presents an original
author’s work as his or her own without the use of quotation marks and a

You need to understand that plagiarism occurs not only
when someone directly copies an author’s work without using both
quotation marks and a citation, but also when someone uses an author’s
original idea, concept, or even bibliography without properly citing the
original author’s work.

Even unintentional, accidental plagiarism is a serious
violation of academic integrity for academics throughout the world. In
addition to a damaged reputation, the consequences of plagiarism may
include the loss of one’s diploma and employment. Therefore, you must
familiarize yourself with Walden University’s rules of academic
integrity as well as the proper use of citation formats. Note that
Walden University requires the use of American Psychological Association
(APA) format for citations, although other educational institutions and
professional associations and journals may prefer different citation
formats, such as the Modern Language Association (MLA) or Chicago style

While research suggests that students in the United
States continue to struggle with plagiarism, international students may
face additional challenges. For example, cultures that place a high
value on group collaboration and group achievement may not know about
the American and European rules of intellectual property rights for
independent authors.

    enforcement called “The effect of law enforcement stress on
