Recognizing and Avoiding Plagiarism

Primary tabs

Avoiding plagiarism is an increasingly important requirement for student writing. This document therefore defines plagiarism, both intentional and accidental; gives the imperatives for avoiding it; shows citation examples; and demonstrates how paraphrase can replace plagiarism by means of an interactive exercise. Coverage of the plagiarism issues will be more complete if you use this document in conjunction with Copyright and Electronic Publishing: Citation and with the Template for Taking Notes on Research Articles.
