Avoiding plagiarism

The Oxford English Dictionary defines plagiarism as "[t]he practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own" 

You're plagiarizing when you: 

  • Copy, quote, paraphrase or summarize any source without citing the source 
  • Purchase a research paper 
  • Allow another person to write a research paper for you
  • Submit another person's work in your name

‚ÄčTo avoid plagiarism, give credit whenever you use:

  • another person’s idea, opinion, or theory
  • any piece of information that is not common knowledge
  • another person’s actual spoken or written words
  • paraphrase of another person’s spoken or written words
