Online Guide to Avoiding Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's ideas without proper credit.

Often plagiarism is unintentional, resulting from a lack of understanding of how to honestly and accurately give credit to the sources you use. For more information on plagiarism and examples of fair and unfair use of another's material, follow the link below.
