Citation and Documentation
Plagiarism is copying other people's words or ideas and claiming them as your own.
- If you quote from any author or any previously published source, including Internet or other electronic media sources or broadcast media sources, you must cite the source of your quotation.
- If you borrow an idea from any source, you must cite that source.
- You must cite the source of all quotations, ideas, theories, data, and other information that is not your own.
