Ensuring academic success!
Nevertheless, when you copy another person’s ideas or words without giving credit,
you are plagiarizing, which is committing academic fraud!
“The word comes from the Latin word for kidnapping” (Perrin 121).
Copying from a published essay, web site, buying a paper on-line, copying a phrase without citing, or using a friend's paper, is plagiarizing.
If you do so, you run a terrible risk.
The consequences include the following:
Receiving a F on the paper
Failing the class
Being suspended from Owens.
Losing an opportunity to learn!
Is it your idea?
Do not cite
Is it common knowledge?
Enclose direct quotes with quotation marks.
If it is new to you—
then cite it!
