What exactly does paraphrasing mean on HubPages?
I have been writing an article, and the first half of it is explaining the history of a certain cultural practice. The information comes from a third party publication. The latter half discusses the pros and cons of this practice. Everything is in my own words. Would this be acceptable on HubPages?
On HubPages, and everywhere else on the planet, paraphrasing means you are simply restating, in other words, what someone else has already said or written.
You can read the HubPages policy on paraphrasing and duplicate content here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/publ … d_22732309
To clarify the question: is an article unacceptable on HubPages when half of it paraphrases another source, or does it become unacceptable when an entire hub is paraphrased from one source?
Sorry I couldn't find the answer in LC, and don't want to get it wrong with the first hub!
