1 Substance Use Name Grand Canyon University: PSY- 622 Date Substance Use Start the introduction here … You must have a clear thesis statement. Leave all of the headings (including bold headings) in place – do not change or remove. Taking content verbatim is not acceptable in academic writing. As such, as a matter of practice in my class, I want you to refrain from using direct quotes in your papers- Direct quotes are rarely if ever needed (less than 2-5% of your paper should be direct quotes and it’s better to avoid them altogether). Remember that “research” does not equal “using a direct quote”. Focus on paraphrasing and synthesizing content in your own words to advance your writing and scholarship. When you paraphrase and synthesize, in text-citation and referencing is still necessary because you are acknowledging that the information you have included in your paper came from “somewhere” and that information is not “lay” knowledge to you.
