Plagiarism: What It is and How to Recognize and Avoid It

by Michelle Moore - Saturday, October 22, 2005, 6:38 PM
 
Website resource created by Writing Tutorial Services at Indiana University, Bloomington, IN.

Material includes very specific examples to help students recognize what is plagiarism is and what it is not.

I found the example regarding acceptable and unacceptable paraphrasing to be especially relevant. With a technique I often see my students try to use, the author merely changes phrasing or a few key words. The author goes on to explain that this is still plagiarizing.

From entry on MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching):
"Includes a discussion of plagiarism with several examples and an explanation of each. Strategies for evaluating paraphrasing and for avoiding plagiarism are discussed."
