Understanding Plagiarism

Understanding Plagiarism

Do you understand plagiarism? In some cultures, using someone else’s thoughts and words is a sign of respect for the person. In the United States, it is important to always give credit to the person (or persons) who had the original idea or concept. If you do not provide this information, it is considered to be immoral. Therefore, you need to always make sure to cite the person who came up with the idea. Failure to do so is considered “plagiarism” For some tips on how to avoid, please visit the WRMC guide http://bit.ly/2XEyIoA
