Citing Properly to Avoid Plagiarism

Plagiarism is a serious academic offense. It is generally defined as

  • Presenting someone else’s work as your own work.
  • Copying from text books or articles or websites without acknowledging the source.

In order to avoid plagiarism, you must do own research and come up with your own ideas. Also, if you use or consult other’s works in your writing, cite the source and/or compile references.
