Q. How do I cite a paraphrase?
You will cite a paraphrase exactly as you would a direct quotation with an in-text citation after the paraphrase and a corresponding full citation in a bibliography at the end of the paper. The exact format of an in-text citation will depend on the style that you're using.
For example, here's a paraphrase cited in MLA style.
