How do I avoid plagiarism?
It is easy to avoid plagiarism if you always cite the sources you use. Citing sources not only gives the appropriate credit to the original creator of the work but it also allows those reading your work to refer back to the sources you consulted.
The format of your citations, as well as the precise information that needs to be included in each citation, is governed by specific rules outlined in style manuals. Consult the Citation Styles LibGuide to find out more.
