Paraphrasing, also sometimes called an Indirect Quote, is when you express an author’s idea or concept in your own words. Using an indirect quote involves taking information from the original source and paraphrasing or putting it into your own words. When you paraphrase, you must also credit the original source (APA, 2010).
