PLAGIARISM


Plagiarism can take several forms:

        1.       Using another's writing without proper use of quotation marks. Do not copy onto
                   your paper any of the words of another person without providing quotation marks
                   and without crediting the source. Even if you use only a few of the words in
                   another person's sentence, you must put those words in quotation marks.

Documenting quotations or paraphrases:

        1.       Acknowledge borrowed material within the text by introducing the quotation or
                   paraphrase with the name of the authority from whom it was taken or by providing
                   parenthetical citations.
