Tips on plagiarismEdit
- Material in your sandbox is still subject to Wikipedia’s policies, so do not copy and paste information from your sources into your sandbox.
- Start by taking notes of key concepts, not phrases, from your sources, noting where each came from.
- Write the draft from your notes rather than from the original source, so you are not unconsciously mimicking the original author’s structure or diction.
- The more sources you use, the better you’ll understand the topic, which can help you paraphrase and summarize it in your own words.
