Academic integrity is an ethical policy that gets employed inacademics, and it entails aspects of avoiding plagiarism, maintenanceof honesty, academic standards, and rigor in research and thepublishing of scholarly works( Lyles, 2013). Paraphrasing contributes to academic integrity through promoting theavoidance of issues that get related to plagiarism. Paraphrasingentails the use of synonyms, changes in sentence structures, as wellas changes in clauses and parts of speech and through all thesestrategies, plagiarism gets avoided (Wallwork,2012).
Resources that get used in supporting scholarly writing employ a widevariety of approaches in that they can range from books, journals tomagazines and websites. The APA formatting rules include, a font of12 typed in times new roman, the header must get added, and the papergets presented in four subsections, the title page, abstract, mainbody, and references (Mycyk, 2012).
Some subtle differences between paraphrasing and plagiarism getnoticed under certain circumstances. For instance, plagiarism getscommitted when one takes a seven or more word sequence without properacknowledgment of the author paraphrasing plagiarism occurs when awriter summarizes an idea that he or she borrows from another sourceand fails to cite the author and also to provide the correspondingreference(Wallwork, 2016).
A good writer is one whose work gets presented in a consistent mannerand has a flow of ideas. The reader gets viewed as the judge to anauthor’s work, in most cases, they might not make mistakes whilereading various writings, if they fail to comprehend them, then theauthors work might present challenges to the reader. A reader fearsto indulge in reading what they do not understand, but some writerspublish their written collaborate with an aim of avoiding criticismfrom readers thus complicating their job. A good writer possesses theability to transform any difficult writing to a simple one.
