  2. 2.  “According to the Merriam- Webster OnLine Dictionary, to “plagiarize” means:  to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own  to use (another's production) without crediting the source  to commit literary theft  to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.  In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else’s work and lying about it afterward.”  http://plagiarism.org/resources/student-materials
  3. 3.  I copied a quote from a book or journal and forgot to add quotation marks and cite it in my bibliography.  Is this plagiarism?  Yes, the proper steps need to be taken otherwise you would be plagiarizing.  If you’re quoting it, cite it!  I used quotations and added a quote from a book or journal. I also cited the book or journal in my bibliography.  Is this plagiarism?  No! If you’ve taken all of the correct steps, you haven’t plagiarized!
  4. 4. 3-Steps to Avoid Plagiarism 1. Portion of book or journal is in quotation marks. 2. After quotation end, author’s last name in parentheses. 3. Citation included in bibliography.
