Plagiarism: What it is and How to Steer Clear

To plagiarize is to treat another person's opinions, words, or ideas as if they are your own.  Plagiarism is not limited to simply copying another person's work; it can also include using another person's ideas or research findings in your work without giving proper credit.  In order to succeed in college, it is important to educate yourself on all types of plagiarism.  The guide below, provided by Indiana University at Bloomington, outlines the different types of plagiarism most common in colleges and universities, and discusses how it can be avoided.
