Citing Module Recap:
- Always cite and document other people's words, ideas, and other intellectual property that you use in your papers and that influence your ideas.
- Plagiarism is taking other people's words and/or ideas and presenting them as your own.
- Always use quotation marks when using exact words of an author. It is not enough to give the source.
- When paraphrasing, do not copy author's style or wording. Even if you have a citation, such borrowing is considered plagiarism. When you paraphrase using your own words, credit must still be given to the original author for the idea.
- There are many citation styles - always ask which style your professor prefers.
- Always make sure you are clear on what would be considered
acceptable group work.
- When in doubt, ask your professor.
