Our experienced staff of native English speakers are able to provide paraphrasing and rewriting services that you might need for your academic studies.
Reorganizing the order or the wording of an original sentence while retaining its meaning is called ‘paraphrasing’ or ‘rewriting’. Paraphrasing can improve the content and succinctness of a manuscript, updating its ideas and enriching its content through the provision of comments and recommendations.
Rewriting or paraphrasing is necessary when a study includes indirect quotations from articles, reports, theses, books and similar academic publications prepared by different authors. The ethical values of academic studies are protected by providing the correct references and citations for paraphrased or rewritten parts of an academic manuscript.
What is the content of a paraphrasing or rewriting procedure?
- The original manuscript is read several times until its precise meaning and content are understood.
- The original manuscript is then abandoned and its main ideas are written using different words. The meaning of a text, including its emphasis and ideas, are retained through the use or rewording and alternative statements and ordering. In such circumstances it is not obligatory to include all details pertaining to the source in the rewritten/paraphrased text.
- An analysis procedure is necessary for the rewriting/paraphrasing service. Some paragraphs can be designed so that they include different themes once they have been split into two.
- The intended meaning of each foreign term is carefully examined.
- Those terms that are commonly recognized (such as jargon and specific terminology) within the research field are retained without emendation, as changing every word or term in the text is unnecessary.
- The part of the text that has been rewritten or paraphrased is then compared to the original text and any word or sentence changes controlled so that they are in keeping with the original in meaning but sufficiently dissimilar to avoid plagiarism. If the rewritten/paraphrased part is too close to the main text regarding syntax, this situation is called plagiarism.
- References are provided for all informational sources within the text. If an author is quoted, their name is taken from a footnote or in-text citation and included in expanded form in the sentence itself.
An example of paraphrasing:
The study of happiness has received a tremendous boost from the advent of positive psychology. Happiness is generally defined as subjective well-being, which is to say, an experiential state that contains a globally positive affective tone (Baumeister et al., 2013:505).
The emergence of positive psychology has been a significant impetus behind greater investigation into the concept of happiness. Happiness is usually described as a state of well-being, but this remains highly subjective. According to Baumeister et al. (2013: 505), the state of happiness can be described experimentally, and the affective tone it contains is described as positive in all societies.
