How to use Wordvice AI to Paraphrase Research Articles

Paraphrasing is a must-have skill for any student or researcher, whether you are doing research, writing an essay, or preparing a manuscript. To paraphrase means to rephrase someone else’s content in your own words. To paraphrase well, the key is to change the wording while keeping the original meaning unchanged. Paraphrasing other content and adding it to your writing can make your text more engaging and provide good evidence to support your arguments.

You may want to paraphrase a quote from another research article that is well-known in your field. You may be looking to paraphrase the conclusions of a study that supports the argument you are putting across in your own study. Alternatively, you may simply want to paraphrase a good point or statement that someone else has already brought up.

Naturally, as with quoting, it’s important to cite the source of your information every single time you paraphrase. In addition, when paraphrasing, you must avoid using words that are too similar to the original to avoid accidental plagiarism.

This is where Wordvice AI comes in.
