Any ideas or materials taken from another source for either written or oral use must be fully acknowledged.Do not need to cite:Your own lived experiences, observations, thoughts, and conclusionsYour own research, such as results from experiments or field observationsYour own photographs, video, audio, or other mediaCommon knowledge and general accepted factsUnintentional Plagiarism may result from the disregard for or unawareness of proper scholarly procedures, including using sources correctly and citing those sources.</p> <p>Avoiding Plagiarism3 ways to get information from sources into your paper:Quoting using an authors exact words </p> <p>Paraphrasing putting an authors ideas into your own words</p> <p>Summarizing putting an authors ideas into your own words in a shorter format</p> <p>Quoting: How to do it?Choose passages that either seem especially well phrased or are unique to the author or subject matter. Be selective in your quotations.Integrate your quotes into your writing. You dont have to quote a whole passage. Use ellipses () to indicate words left out.</p> <p>Paraphrasing: How to do it?Dont just take a passage and change a word here or there. Read the passage, reflect upon it, and restate it.Look away from your sources.Paraphrase and then go back and check. Are there any phrases that have come directly from the text? </p> <p>Summarizing: How to do it?Ask yourself:What is the main idea that the author is trying to convey?What idea does all of the supporting evidence point to?What is most important to me in the context in which I am writing?</p> <p>Further Sources on PlagiarismPurdue Online Writing Lab (2013).
