Copyright Info & Avoiding Plagiarism Print Page

Citing Sources Is Crucial

Failing to cite others' 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:

  1. 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.

  2. Remember that paraphrasing without citing is plagiarizing.
