The Importance of Citing Sources and Academic Honesty  

Plagiarism is using another person's idea and pretending it is your own.  It is more serious than borrowing; plagiarism is actually stealing and it's against the law.  Plagiarism can be intentional or unintentional.  

Preventing Plagiarism by Citing Sources 

When writing an essay, research paper or report, you must document or reference the source of all the ideas which you have borrowed from another person's work, otherwise you are guilty of plagiarism or academic dishonesty.
