How to Research Responsibly


The best way to avoid plagiarism is to know how to incorporate the words and ideas of other's into your work.  This begins in the research process. As you research a topic and begin to gather articles, books, web resources and more on whatever you are researching, you need a way to keep track of where you acquired this information so you can properly give credit to the author of the material.  


Below are resources that will give you ideas and strategies for gathering, storing, and organizing your material.  In addition to learning how to gather the necessary citation information, you should consider using one of the many Citation Tools available online.  More on these software and web based tools is provided in the Citation Tools.
