You can avoid plagiarism by:
  • Taking careful notes, writing down the citation for the source, and indicating page numbers.

  • Using quotations when copying the words of an author.
    • Giving credit to the original author in the text and bibliography of your paper.

    • Not procrastinating. You are more likely to plagiarize
      --either accidentally or on purpose--when you are in
      a rush.
