Ways to avoid plagiarism

March 17, 2017

Concerns about plagiarism are common, especially among new students.


There are a couple of measures you can take to ensure you don’t accidentally plagiarise.


The first is to take good notes. When taking notes make sure you include a full reference listing to indicate where you got the information from. Make sure you distinguish quotes in your notes from paraphrasing (by using quote marks or a different colour for quotes).


The second is to take care to reference all information full. Make sure you reference where you got your information from through in-text citations, including when you paraphrase. Make sure every source cited in the text is included in the reference list.
