Hi. Please note that this made-up writing is written to ask questions on paraphrasing. Let us assume it is written by John Doe on his book titled "XXX", on page 9.

Junk food is incurring heavy costs (toll?) on today's young children in school (in schools?). The accessibility of venting machines on school campuses that stock all kinds of junk food is making them hard to follow the right dietary pattern. Also, the low-cost nature of junk food on school campuses adds to the negative effect of its ready availability. Therefore, it would be good to institue a policy wherein (in which?) a school is not allowed to have vending machines on its campus.


1) Do we need to put quotation marks around in the paraphrase if the same word or phrase appears in the original quote like "young children," "young children in school, " "machines" or "vending machines"?

2) Do you think the following is a good (correct?) paraphrase? The need to put quotation marks around the words that appear in the original quote seems to make the following aesthetically inviting. Can you help?

John Doe (19XX) opines strongly against having "vending machines" (Do I need to put quotation marks here?) on "campuses" (Do I need to put quotation marks here?) and attributes the low cost and "accessibilty" of junk food as reasons why "young children in school" are not eating right and fall victim to it. He advocates having a policy which prohibits putting "vending machines" on campuses. (p. 9)

You can paraphrase anything you want to. Whether you do it well is up to you.

1) No, it is usually not necessary unless it is some special word or specific, word-by-word copied phrase. By putting quotes around these words you are stating very clearly that these are not your words; you only copied them; don't blame the messenger. People will think you disagree with the word. Do you remember these Austin Powers movies where they make quotes in the air with their hands? That's what this reads like. Emotion: smile (see scare quotes: )

2) You can remove all quotation marks from that.

If you're having troubles with rewriting your paper but there's no one around who could help you, then using a

professional paraphrasing tool is the best option for you. Doing that on your own would be even better but if you're out of time and you want to save your nerves, use a tool or hire an expert who will do it with top-notch quality. Whatever you choose, remember that it's critical to paraphrase, especially if you're using someone's material in your own research. You can mention the main ideas (since the subject has been already explored before you) but you should do it carefully, ensuring that you've changed the structure but preserved the meaning at the same time.
