What is plagiarism, and how can I avoid it?

Plagiarism is an act of using content, such as ideas or works, that someone created without acknowledgement. In an academic setting, intentionally or unintentionally, plagiarism is considered as a form of academic dishonesty. Using sections from your previous assignments without referencing them is classified as self-plagiarism.

You can easily prevent plagiarism by citing and referencing the resources you use for your paper or work. Learn more about plagiarism and academic integrity through TLC’s online course or watch the LinkedIn course on plagiarism.
