Citing Your Research
When conducting academic research, all contributors must be credited. Not to do so is plagiarism, that is, intentionally or unintentionally taking the ideas, work, or words of another without sufficiently acknowledging their source. The following resources will assist you in understanding how to credit the sources of your research, the nature of plagiarism, and how to avoid it. Should you have additional questions, please contact a Librarian.
