What are the basic ways of avoiding plagiarism

■ provide in-text documentation for each idea you have 'borrowed' from someone else (see Section 4.8 Quoting)

■ put quotation marks round each item directly quoted (see Section 4.8 Quoting)

■ make sure that your paraphrased material is written in your own style and language, and not simply copied from another person, or their sentences just rearranged (see Section 4.7 Paraphrasing)

■ provide detailed information in your footnotes (or endnotes) and bibliography about all the sources you have cited (see Section 2.9 Referencing)
