Question:

In scientific writing, is it ever a good idea to use direct quotations? Why, or why not?

Inactive
Calla C.
Answer:

Scientific writing is generally concerned more with the idea an author is trying to convey than with the exact way the idea was worded. Therefore, to be as concise as possible, it is best to paraphrase the main idea and always cite the original author.
