Q. Can I paraphrase my own paper?
I took an introduction class this past summer, but cannot remember if it is plagiarism to use your own paper? I am in the middle of writing a paper and three paragraphs would really fit nicely into this paper. I am going to paraphrase my own words so is this allowable? I was unsure.

As long as you cite it properly, just as you would with anything else, it is okay. "Recycling" old papers without attribution is considered plagiarism.
