Close paraphrasing[edit]

When you find good information for a Wikipedia article, you'll want to put it into your own words.

Make sure the words, and structure, of the information you share are substantially different from the source it came from.

Close paraphrasing is when the basic structure of a sentence or passage stays the same, even with small tweaks to the wording.

This is bad news, whether you cite it or not.
