Avoiding Plagiarism

You can avoid plagiarism by:

  • Taking careful notes, writing down the citation for the source, and indicating page numbers.

  • Using quotations when copying the words of an author.

  • Giving credit to the original author in the text and bibliography of your paper.

  • Not procrastinating. You are more likely to plagiarize, either accidentally or on purpose, when you are in a rush.
