• Citing Your Sources

    When you use someone else's work in your own academic  work, you must give them the CREDIT.
    Failure to do so is plagiarism, or the stealing or passing on of another's work as your own.
     
    Examples of intentional plagiarism are:
    copying a friend's work
    cutting and pasting blocks of text
    borrowing images without citing the original source
    Examples of unintentional plagiarism are:
    quoting excessively
    poor documentation
    failure to use your own ideas
