    ALL MATERIALS USED FOR RESEARCH MUST BE PROPERLY REFERENCED IN A PARTICULAR FORMAT- EITHER APA FORMAT OR VANCOEVER. IN-TEXT MUST BE REFERENCED ACCORDINGLY

    Derivation from an existing source is an act of honesty and acknowledgment of the consent of the original creator.

    A fundamental approach to avoiding plagiarism is poviding appropriate in-text citation and references/bibliography. However this is only one aspect of plagiarism; the other critical aspect of avoidance of plagiarism is APPROPRIATE USE of cited materials. It is this aspect that softwares actually evaluate. This aspect requires critical skills in PARAPHRASING/SUMMARISING- a challenge to non-native speakers. Whereas there is substantial AWARENESS on plagiarism among researchers in my locality, there was poor K OWLEDGE of the nuances of plagiarism. I elaborated on some of these issues in webinar presentation few months ago.

  • I have no doubt about obeying the rules and principles guiding research. Works should not be copied but used to guide yours. Do not forget to reference your sources

    Referencing of work done is a way of avoiding plagiarism
