Citing Sources Is Crucial

Failing to cite other's work properly in your own projects, even unintentionally, can have serious consequences!

The mildest consequences for plagiarizing in a university setting range from receiving an 'F' on the assignment to a failing grade in the course; the most serious consequences can involve one being expelled from school. A couple of basic points to remember:

- To avoid any kind of plagiarism, be sure to keep track of what information you are getting from what source, then cite each of these sources in your work.

- Remember that paraphrasing without citing is plagiarizing.
