Learn more about how to avoid plagiarism in your academic writing. Make sure that it is clear which words and ideas are your own and what material you have incorporated from other sources!
Plagiarism at university means using another person's text/material and making it appear as one's own. The basic principle is that it must be clear which words and ideas are your own and what material you have incorporated from other sources. When you use someone else's material you must always state the source. This applies whether you are paraphrasing, summarizing or quoting texts that others have written.
