WHAT IS PLAGIARISM?

"Plagiarism is a serious academic offence... Most simply, plagiarism is intellectual theft. Any use of another author's research, ideas, or language without proper attribution may be considered plagiarism." (Gordon, 1)

  1. It is NEVER acceptable to copy someone else's work without proper citation (using quotations and giving credit).

  1. Graphs, statistics and images can appear in your work, but must be CITED (reference given to the author).
  1. Common knowledge, what is known to most people, need not be cited, but must be expressed IN YOUR OWN WORDS.

There are serious consequences for plagiarized work at LFMSS. You will find this information in your school agenda.

Information on how to cite your sources is also found in your student agenda and in the Bibliographies, Works Cited Lists, & Citations Guides section of the library web site.
