    What is Plagiarism?

    Plagiarism is presenting someone else's work or thoughts as your own.  Whether this is done intentionally or not, plagiarism is a serious offense. 

    Credit must be given in the form of a citation when quoting directly, summarizing, or paraphrasing the source. Even when putting a source's information in your own words, you have to cite it! 

    Use the citation guides listed above for help creating proper citations! 

    Protect yourself; when in doubt, ask your professor for guidance when citing sources in your paper.
