What you need to stay out of trouble*

Whether you're paraphrasing or directly quoting, if something wasn't original to you, cite it!

  • Turnitin - an online service that will check your paper for plagiarism. This service is built into D2L.
  • Plagiarism.org - website that explains different types of plagiarism and offers some guidance on properly integrating information into your paper.

    *Trouble as in: failing your assignment, failing your class, or being expelled altogether!
    See the LSCS Student Handbook (pdf) pages 26-27 for an explanation of academic dishonesty & its consequences.
