NSU students are expected to follow accurate APA rules when completing writing assignments. APA ensures that sources are properly cited, helping to avoid plagiarism.

In-Text Citations Internal (in-text) citation identifies the source of information. It is used to give credit to authors whose ideas or thoughts are used within the academic paper. Internal citations allow the reader to identify the source and find the borrowed information within it. 1. Plagiarism [APA—pp. 15-16] Plagiarism is the improper use of another person’s words or ideas. Plagiarism includes quoting someone’s words without giving them credit, stealing someone’s idea, and paying someone to write your paper. Regardless of whether the plagiarism is intentional or not, it is a serious academic offense. In order to avoid plagiarism, cite all sources used in research. Sources May Include the Following: Books Magazines / journals / newspaper articles Database articles Films Television programs Radio documentaries Websites Blogs Internet bulletin boards / forums E-mails Encyclopedias Personal Communications 2. Paraphrasing [APA—pp. 170-174] Paraphrasing is stating the original material in your own words. Assignment: Health Care and Policy MSN2 Questions Changing a few words in an otherwise untouched quote does not constitute paraphrasing. In order to paraphrase effectively, the information must be re-stated in a new way. Therefore, successful paraphrasing occurs when you are able to maintain the intended meaning of the original source without copying the words or sentence structure. Tip: Read the information to be paraphrased, then close the book/ turn off the computer. Make sure you understood the information; then, restate it in your own words. Go back and check for accuracy. Doing this helps prevent you from copying words or sentence structure, which may constitute plagiarism. 10 APA Manual Example: Read the original passage below and compare it with the paraphrased versions.
