Rewording is called paraphrasing. It is fine to paraphrase information found in other sources for your paper, but you have to give proper credit, just as you do with a direct quote. To do this in APA or MLA formats, use parenthetical citation.

For more information on paraphrasing and plagiarism, see the Plagiarism tab in our Information Ethics LibGuide. Use the Cite your Sources tab to access our LibGuides on your citation style.
