Join Elsa Loftis for an in-depth discussion in this video Plagiarism: What it is and how to avoid it, part of Information Literacy.
- Plagiarism is using someone else's work…without giving the original author credit for it.…It is an unethical practice, and in essence, is stealing.…Plagiarism is using words or ideas from a source…that is not credited.…Quoting or paraphrasing without citation.…Mentioning a unique idea or something…that is not common knowledge as if it were your own.…Submitting all or part of a work you previously created…without the permission of your instructors.…Here we are talking about plagiarizing yourself,…like submitting a paper you wrote for another course.…
How you can avoid it.…Use your own words.…Credit the original source.…Use quotation marks when using text from original sources.…Paraphrase without just changing…a few words or the word order.…Double check your work…to make sure everything is properly cited.…Often, plagiarism is the by-product of a rush…or messy research process.…Most people do not intend to plagiarize materials,…but rather, they forget to insert quotation marks…and give credit when appropriate.…Or, they intend to go back and rewrite or rephrase…
