International Student Services: Plagiarism

Plagiarism: what is it?

Defined most simply, plagiarism is using someone else's content (words, music, image, etc.) as if it came from you. 

Avoid accidental plagiarizing


1) Keep direct quotes in a separate document from your working document.

‚Äč2) Keep track of all sources quoted and paraphrased - record information needed to cite the source.

3) When in doubt, check your paraphrased wording against the wording within the sources.
