Copyright and Plagiarism

Think Before You Copy!

Always give credit for others' work. Yes, you can paraphrase and quote reference material, but you must give credit by citing sources and adding reference list.

Think about how you would feel if you put in 40 hours on a research paper and a friend or stranger found a copy of your file and used most of your research and paper. You would probably be very upset. Well, this is the same scenario when you "borrow" other created work and never give credit.

Think before you cut and paste. Be smart and give credit!
