Description

All authors need to rely on secondary information besides their own findings, and it is easy to blur the lines of sanctity without intending to. The slightest misstep may inadvertently lead to plagiarism, which in the field of scientific research is a serious concern. So what if you want to cite another researcher's work in your own paper? Is there a way to incorporate previously published work into your own writing without being accused of plagiarism?

Through this program, you will learn about the different types of plagiarism, intentional and unintentional, and understand how critical it is to clearly distinguish between your own ideas and the borrowed ideas on which your research conclusions may be based. You will also get expert tips and practical techniques to help you organize and synthesize data, acknowledge references, add the correct citations, and judiciously paraphrase your interpretations based on borrowed data to avoid plagiarism.
