“Quotation marks should be used to indicate the exact words of another. Each time you paraphrase another author (i.e. summarize a passage or rearrange the order of a sentence and change some of the words), you will need to credit the source in the text. The key element of this principle is that an author does not present the work of another as if it were his or her own work” (Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 2005, p. 349).
