Is it plagiarism if...?
you copy and paste 5 sentences from an encyclopedia entry into your paper?
...or 1 sentence?
...from Wikipedia?
you turn in an essay from a government website labeled "public domain" or "free to use"?
...but you give credit to the site at the end of your paper?
your friend gives you his old paper, but you change the title?
...and replace key words throughout the text?
...but eventually decide to rewrite the whole paper, just borrowing the thesis?
what if a friend or tutor writes your paper for you?
So, there are lots of ways
to plagiarize...
How can you avoid it?
Using outside sources
& reading for information
Before searching, think: What do I need?
answers to questions
a range of viewpoints
evidence to support my argument
Outside sources
should serve these functions within
your
paper.

Paraphrasing
Summarizing
Original text:

From Chapter I of Robert Louis Stevenson's
Treasure Island
:
Quote
(sparingly)
when commenting on original language or illustrating a point
when changing exact words would decrease effectiveness
Stevenson emphasizes an aura of darkness around the strange old seaman, describing him as "nut-brown" with "tarry" hair and "black, broken nails."
Quote
Bones introduces the reader to a recurring song: "Fifteen men on The Dead Man's Chest— / Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"
Use ellipses to omit words and square brackets for changes
Quoting tip:
Jim "remember[s] him looking round the cove [...]
then breaking out in that old sea-song."
Paraphrase
to capture author's main ideas in your words
Jim vividly recalls his first glimpse of Billy Bones, the sailor's scarred and disheveled appearance suggesting his treacherous life, likewise alluded to by his song.
Summarize
to reduce an entire passage or article to its most basic points
Billy Bones's disheveled appearance and cryptic song provide Jim's - and the reader's - first hints of the perilous adventure ahead.
You're almost in the clear...
But now you need to
acknowledge your sources with
citations.
Citations
tell your reader where you found your information
quotations
paraphrases
summaries
Two NECESSARY components:
You may also hear
"document your sources"
"give credit"
"attribute"
"references list"
"bibliography"
"works cited"
1. In-text citations or footnotes

The handmaids' uniforms highlight the wearers' sexuality even as they hide the women's bodies, which is emblematic of Gilead's inherent contradictions.

Brevity is the soul of wit.
