Plagiarism--A Student's Guide to Avoiding It

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: TJ Rarig (Student), Sep 27, 2011

I came across this guide while taking my undergraduate physics courses. There’s something wrong with that. I should have come across it while taking my English courses (including elementary school)!  The types and descriptions of plagiarisms and each one’s supporting examples provide the basic idea on how to properly write a reference paper. But of course, plagiarism isn’t just limited to written papers. Plagiarism is too easy to do, just as the author explains from the onset in this uniquely valuable tool. After reading and understanding the different types of examples, the reader should feel empowered to think and communicate, while referencing other’s work, their own ideas effectively and without reproach. Something everyone, despite their background, should be able to do.
