What is synthesis? How do I synthesize information?


Synthesizing is the use of multiple sources in one paraphrased sentence or paragraph to make a strong point.

If you paraphrase multiple sources in the same sentence, you should include each source in the citation. Separate sources using semi-colons (;) and create the citation in the normal style (Name, Source Number).

(Harvey, 1; Buchanan, 2)

In the example, the authors Harvey and Buchanan were paraphrased to help the student make a strong point. Harvey is the first source on the Source List, and Buchanan is the second source on the Source List.
