HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS: PLAGIARISM IS TOTALLY AVOIDABLE!
By accurately paraphrasing or quoting another's words and giving credit to our sources by providing citations, we can ethically use sources to strengthen our arguments.
As you write your paper, keep in mind that the final draft must include these elements:
* Direct quotes need quotation marks and an in-text citation.
* Paraphrases and summaries need an in-text citation.
* All sources cited in the paper must be included in a reference list at the end of the paper.
BOTTOM LINE: If it is not your own words, phrasing, idea, or image-- you need to cite it!
