    I cited where I found this definition, but notice that Oxford Reference Online also cited the dictionary!

    Last semester, you wrote a paper for your English class about the evils of breakfast cereal. This semester, you’re asked to write a similar paper, and your cereal paper is perfect. You make some small changes, and turn it in.
    Talk to your instructor, first. They might be able to work with you! (Avoid academic dishonesty)
    YES – Self-Plagiarism!
  • Plagiarism – Yes or No
    You have properly cited an article, but in your works-cited list, you accidentally used a comma instead of a period in one place!

    Using another person’s ideas – Cite them properly
    Exact quotes – Use quotation marks and cite them properly.
