Some examples of plagiarism are:
- Copying information from a website, book, song, film, image or another student and presenting it as your own
- Paraphrasing, quoting or using ideas from sources, without writing down your source material in a reference list
To avoid plagiarism:
- Take notes in your own words under sub-headings relevant to your assignment
- Avoid cutting and pasting
- Find information from a number of sources
- Use quotation marks if you are making a direct quote of somebody else’s work
- Acknowledge photographs, songs, lyrics with a caption citing their creator and source
- Cite your sources throughout your assignment and in a reference list
