Introduction to Avoiding Plagiarism

This workshop explains in general terms what plagiarism is and how to avoid it.

Instructions

Plagiarism means presenting someone else’s words or ideas as though they are your own. To avoid plagiarism:

  1. Include a citation each time you use the words or ideas of others in your work.
  2. For a complete citation, include an in-text citation immediately after you include someone else’s words or ideas and a full bibliographic reference in the correct location, according to the citation style you are using.
  3. Use a citation style to be consistent in how you cite.
  4. Contact your institution’s writing centre, tutoring service, or library if you need more help.
