Information on Citations and Plagiarism
Knowing if Credible website or not
Quoting - Quotations are the exact words of an authority, copied directly from a source, word for word. QUOTATIONS MUST BE CITED! Having to many quotes is the same as copy and pasting someones work and claiming it as your own.
Paraphrasing - Paraphrasing means rephrasing the words of an author, putting his/her thoughts in your own words. Must be cited. Simply changing a few words around is not paraphrasing.
What are MLA citations? What is included in them?
Here are some examples of what a MLA citation looks like.
How do you use search term correctly?
When asking a question on Google, don't make it so long narrow it down to not enough information. The same thing goes for when looking something up. If you type in a very long a question then will not get what you are looking for and not the correct information.
What is Plagiarism? How do you avoid it?
Avoid plagiarism is easier than you think it is. If you are doing a research project and you see something you like, you can quote it, paraphrase it or summarize it. Also, don't copy things down without using citations.
