What is Plagiarism?

To present an idea or product from an existing source as new and original. To pass off the work of another as one's own.

(Merriam-Webster, 2019)

How do you avoid plagiarizing?

  • Cite sources that you reference using an established citation style (e.g. APA)
  • Indicate direct quotes using quotation marks
  • When not quoting directly, paraphrase content
  • Remember to cite images, videos, podcasts and other media
  • Remember to cite presentations and personal communication (e.g. email)
