Plagiarism --- Any ideas, images, or words you do not create yourself must be given proper credit, if you use them in your paper it shows you have academic integrity and honesty, and helps your readers find your information sources. It shows where your information came from and adds credibility to your paper. When it is time to gather your notes and start writing the paper, avoid the common mistake --- plagiarism. Plagiarism is not only taking large parts of someone else's work, but also not attributing credit to that author.
