Academic Standards and Ethics

Plagiarism is still plagiarism.  For your own safety and self-respect remember the following rules:

[1]        The language in your paper must either be your own or a direct quote from the original source.

[2]        Changing a few words or phrases from another writer’s work is not enough to make the writing “your own.”  Remember Rule 1.  The writing is either your own or the other person’s; there are no in-betweens!

[3]        Documentation acknowledges that the fact or opinion expressed comes from another writer.  If the language comes from another writer, quotation [“”] marks are necessary in addition to the documentation.”
