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): 46-47.
a. Students often use too many direct quotations when they take notes, resulting in too many of them in the final research paper. In fact, probably only about 10% of the final copy should consist of directly quoted material. So it is important to limit the amount of source material copied while taking notes. (Lester 46-47).
b. Students should take just a few notes in direct quotation from sources to help minimize the amount of quoted material in a research paper (Lester 46-47).
c. In research papers students often quote excessively, failing to keep quoted material down to a desirable level. Since the problem usually originates during note taking, it is essential to minimize the material recorded verbatim (Lester 46-47).

”Having a home is a basic human need; we all need somewhere to live. For those people within society without a home life is barely tolerable, and for society (especially a modern welfare state) a continuing problem of homelessness is an indictment of the ability of that society to meet the welfare needs of all its citizens. Yet homelessness remains a significant problem in affluent, welfare, Britain at the beginning of the twenty-first century, with hundreds of people sleeping rough on the streets of towns and cities every night because they do not have a home of their own to go to”. (Alcock 2003, p. 73).
a. ”Having a home is a basic human need; we all need somewhere to live”. However, despite the fact that Britain is a wealthy society with an established welfare state, there are still many homeless people living on the streets.
b. ”Having a home is a basic human need; we all need somewhere to live” (Alcock 2003, p. 73). However, as Alcock (2003) points out, despite the fact that Britain is a wealthy society with an established welfare state, there are still many homeless people living on our streets.
c. Having a home is a basic human need; we all need somewhere to live. (Alcock 2003, p. 73). However, even in affluent, welfare Britain, there are still hundreds of people sleeping rough.
