What sources must be documented

■ Every reference to another's work, word or ideas must be cited.

■ Every paraphrase must acknowledge the original source.

■ Every citation from a book, magazine, journal, the Internet, or speech must be noted.

■ Every borrowing must be documented.

■ Every quotation (whole or partial) must be given due credit.

Not all plagiarism is intentional, but that in no way changes the seriousness of the offence -and the consequences suffered in reputation and integrity for the writer, the writer's research, and the writer's written results. Plagiarism can and has destroyed careers.
