How To Avoid Plagiarism

Post by louli on Tue Aug 18, 2009 4:38 pm

Plagiarize: to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own: use (another's production) without crediting the source

- It does not matter for your professor whether you plagiarize incidentally or deliberately. To be on the safe side -remember rule 1.

- First of all avoiding plagiarism implies citing sources. You donít have to do it only when the idea is a common fact for the intended audience.

- Common knowledge is something that:
- your reader already knows.
- can easily be found in general reference sources. - isnít cited in other sources.

- To avoid plagiarism you should start documenting the sources as early as you start doing your research.

- In your draft mark the ideas that are your own and those which are drawn from other sources. Underline, italicise someone elseís words in your notes. As you are paraphrasing, try not to peep into the primary source, write form memory. Then you will check and correct the possible inaccuracies. Start paraphrasing with acknowledging the author: According toÖ.., . If you want to keep a particular phrase, do not fail to use quotation marks with it.

- Limit the general number of direct quotations to the most powerful ones. Your writing will lose its own voice and identity when stuffed with too many direct quotes.

welcome to all of you mates!

chichidodo never say that , reading is never a bad matter, it is the sourse of our daily knowledge. and if we are getting most of information from listening and watching, it is also thanks to reading because they(the ones we watch & listen to) read and made it simple to us by making us watch & listen.
