PLAGIARISM Plagiarism  means  using the words, opinions, or factual information from another person without giving the person credit.  Writers give credit through the use of  accepted documentation styles, such as parenthetical citation,  footnotes, or endnotes; a simple listing of books and articles is not  sufficient. Plagiarism is the equivalent of intellectual robbery and  cannot be tolerated in an academic setting.  (“English Department Statement on Plagiarism”, Guidebook  31).   RULES FOR AVOIDING PLAGIARIM 1) Cite a) ALL quoted material and b) ALL summarized or paraphrased material, unless the information is common knowledge (e.g. the Civil War was fought from 1861 to 1865). 2) Make sure that both the wording and the sentence structure of your summaries and paraphrases are substantially your own . GUIDELINES FOR CITING SOURCES (Examples of styles: MLA,APA, CBE, CM, AAA, ASA, IEEE)
