In every sentence following the first sentence, use attributive tags to attribute the ideas to the author: use the author’s last name or he/she and use phrases such as “according to” and precise signal verbs. Use transitions and other signposts to show the relationship between the ideas, capturing the structure and flow of the source’s ideas. Use quotations sparingly, if at all. Represent the source’s ideas accurately, fairly, objectively, and comprehensively yet concisely.
