Avoiding Plagiarism

Researching ethically is also researching efficiently.

  • Start your research early; give yourself time to research carefully.
  • Note the sources you use when you use them so you don't have to go back later and try to find them. 
  • Distinguish between main argument and minor points/examples
  • Use your own words (paraphrase)
  • Use a Citation Manager, such as EndNote or Zotero, to manage your citations and cite while you write.

See these examples of how to paraphrase at the University of Cambridge's guide on plagiarism.
