Q. How do I make sure I'm avoiding plagiarism when I use sources?
If the material you are quoting, paraphrasing or summarizing is...
- someone else's knowledge
- uncommon knowledge
- an exact copy (a quotation) of someone else's words (or image)
- it adds value that serves purposes other than giving credit (such as helping a reader find an original source, or adding authority to your ideas)
- you're not sure
the material needs to be cited!
