Avoiding Plagiarism

"What is Plagiarism?

Nearly everyone understands that copying passages verbatim from another writer's work and representing them as one's own work constitute plagiarism. Yet plagiarism involves much more. At LSU plagiarism is defined to include any use of another's work and submitting that work as one's own. This means not only copying passages of writing or direct quotations but also paraphrasing or using structure or ideas without citation. Learning how to paraphrase and when and how to cite is an essential step in maintaining academic integrity." From LSU Student Advocacy & Accountability

 

Here are some links to help you avoid plagiarism when working on your papers.

In the AMA citation style, journal titles are required to be abbreviated. It can be confusing determining the title of a journal from a citation AND how to properly cite the journal's abbreviated title. However, the National Library of Medicine has created a nifty database to help you with this.
