How to Avoid plagiarizing

“Plagiarism is the act of taking someone else’s words, ideas, or information and passing them off as your own. If you don’t give credit to the author of these ideas in footnotes or endnotes and a bibliography, you are committing plagiarism, which is a serious academic offense.” – Regalado, Mariana. “Academic Integrity and Plagiarism” Brooklyn College Library.
