                1. ORIGINAL TEXT
                  1. Students frequently overuse direct quotation in taking notes, and as a result they overuse quotations in the final [research] paper. Probably only about 10% of your final manuscript should appear as directly quoted matter. Therefore, you should strive to limit the amount of exact transcribing of source materials while taking notes. Lester, James D. Writing Research Papers. 2nd ed., 1976, pp. 46-47.
                  2. PARAPHRASED TEXT
                    1. It is very common for students to exaggerate in the use of quotations when taking notes, which can be seen in their academic writing. For that reason, it is essential to reduce the number of words coming from the original source; thus, the quoted text does not exceed 10% (Lester, 46-47)
