How do you avoid plagiarism?

  • credit any sources that you quote or paraphrase
    • quote: using the exact language
    • paraphrase: re-wording the concept in your own words
  • don't cheat!
    • only turn in work that you created yourself

Quoting:

Hunter, Lindsay and Anderson (2008) found that a, "lower approach velocity also appears to lead to a shorter jump and as a consequence, results in an uphill step out of the water pit following landing."

Excerpt from the paper I wrote about the steeplechase.

The text from a paper I found about the differences in steeplechase hurdling technique between men and women

Hunter, I., Lindsay, B. K., & Andersen, K. R. (2008). Gender differences and biomechanics in the 3000m steeplechase water jump. Journal Of Sports Science & Medicine(2), 218-222.
