Cite Sources: Plagiarism

Introduction

Avoid plagiarism. Cite your sources.

Plagiarism occurs when you steal someone else's ideas in order to pass them off as your own or when you use another's work without crediting the source.

Citations identify the sources you have quoted, paraphrased, or otherwise used within your work. Citing your sources allows you to give credit to those whose ideas you have used and allows others to follow-up with and verify those ideas.
