The importance of plagiarism:
Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgement. All published and unpublished material, whether in manuscript, printed or electronic form, is covered under this definition. Plagiarism may be intentional or reckless, or unintentional. Under the regulations for examinations, intentional or reckless plagiarism is a disciplinary offence.
Why cite sources of information to prevent of plagiarismm?
Citing your sources allows you to:
1. acknowledge your dependence on another person’s ideas or words, and to distinguish clearly your own work from that of your sources
2. receive credit for the research you have done on a project, whether or not you directly quote or borrow from your sources
3. establish the credibility and authority of your knowledge and ideas
4. place your own ideas in context, locating your work in the larger intellectual conversation about your topic
5. permit your reader to pursue your topic further by reading more about it
6. permit your reader to check on your use of the source material.
